    @Zen67 I don't think you'd go far wrong with KIS as it suits my needs and does everything I want it to do and rates well in tests

    Im looking for a free, most affordable (integrated or not doesn't matter) suite of programs that ensure me the maximum protection possible...

    might be mse (for av and antispy) comodo firewall...

    you may read what crazy.cat wrote about MSE

    http://www.megalab.it/5213/microsoft...virus-gratuito

    (only in italian and I do not why google translate today doesn't work).

    I MSE is good but it should be improved.
    I installed it and took 8 Hours for a full scan and 1 hour to remove 3 false positive detections.
    It can also slow down Firefox and Thunderbird

    iīve got a good combination:
    iīm using: a normal "USER-account", MSE, Avira-free, a2-full, MBAM-free, Comodoīs FW & D+, WinPatrol, a HOSTS-file, UAC at max, a working "main CPU" & "2 optical input units".

    you can get a2-fullversion for FREE:
    Emsisoft is giving away 1-year licenses, starting 091111 (nov 11) 11.11 CET, for 24h only !

    hi !

    a2 takes about 63MB.

    i got 2GB RAM, using 500MB on a RAM-disk, and have 1GB free RAM,
    so i donīt care if my AVīs take a few 100 MBīs, as long as iīm protected...

    Of course MSE is the best free antivirus for my uncle... he's oaf about Windows XP & Office use.
    My recommendation is to perform a single full scan at begin, then disable scheduled scan in settings.
