    I think if you have all those running at once, they will conflict with each other and slow or stop your machine.

    What is the problem?
    What are you trying to do?

    The more info you put here = better advice.

    Thanks.

    Richard.

    Kaspersky Pure has a firewall, so you don't need to turn on Windows 7's firewall. If you turn both on, there will be conflicts.

    I don't have Kaspersky's product, so I can't comment on that. I use Win 7's firewall. And it seems to have all I need. It can specify program file exe's and Windows services in its rules. It can also specify ports and ip addresses. There are inbound and outbound rules. To me, thats all a firewall should do and it does them.

    I think you'll be just fine with a very reputable antivirus and firewall suite like Kaspersky, no matter what those "independent...:rolleyes:" reviews say. You won't find two websites with the same results...

    Combined with the free version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and perhaps SUPERAntiSpyware, you'll have all you need. Just disable Windows Defender. It's useless.

    If you're going to impune someone's integrity, Phantom, I suggest you have something other than your random thoughts to throw around.

    Nothing personal, DoubleHelix. I'm referring to the reviews from all over the Web, not only the one from your link. But I know you like Norton and I've probably touched a nerve... ;)

    The reviews from PCMag are very reputable, and they recommend several suites and provide very useful information so people can make an informed decision. I've made no recommendation here.

    Again, not implying you made the recommendations.
