Lets see...the operating system is Vista. Too lazy, poor, and no quick way to move storage around to switch to Windows 7.
As for other programs, I use:
Quick Media Converter
MP3 Gain (Very nifty tool; analyzes an mp3's volume and you can tweak it. Favorite song softer than your other ones? Download this software and you can balance it out. Very handy)
Photoshop/Imageready 7. I'm going to upgrade by the end of the year to CS4 and all those fun programs. Yay school discounts!
Yeah, there's more, but I don't really use them.
And yes, Kapersky is a good if you can afford it actually. unlike most AVs, it uses behavioral detection protocols rather than the standard signature based protocols that most AVs use(including paid ones like Norton and such).
I use AVG. Best free AV software out there
Thanks for sharing some technical aspects of it. Haven't heard of it before.
I thought you already used Windows 7 so why do you need another one? >.>
Btw, what firewalls are you guys all on?
AVG for now lol, but I'm more then likely going to purchase Kaspersky soon.
I'm honestly not too keen on paid AV softwares(or paid security softwares in general). I mean, threats aren't so bad that you need anything more than what free softwares can give you and honestly, the best protection is awareness. Rare are the autonomous viruses(or malwares) these days and you as a user usually have to do something in order to initiate a viral infection so you as a user carry a [large] part of the responsibility.
Btw, Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7 has been rated a good AV apparently.
Btw Jinbei, AVG is primarily an anti-virus(but it has built in firewall properties).
Avira is my anti-virus and Windows Firewall is my well... firewall. xD My other softwares are
- Microsoft Office (the entire shebang)
- Windows Live Messenger
- Photoshop CS3
- Mozilla Firefox
- VLC Media Player
- Font Xplorer (really useful if I'm GFXing, lol)
- Pen Tablet
- Google Earth
- Sims 2 (expansion packs up to Apartment Life)
- Malware Bytes
- Tomb Raider Anniversary
As you can prolly see, I am quite paranoid, seeing that I have three virus/malware/spyware protection programs. xD
You're not paranoid lol You basically have one AV, one firewall, one anti-spyware and one anti-malware; pretty basic stuff. If you had more than one, we'd talk lol >.> This is paranoid: using 3 proxy servers around the world when accessing any network other than your home network for internet uses(basically, if they tried to trace you, they'd end up in Asia and Africa before finding you).
Although I don't use Spybot anymore, it tends to scan every internet page I open so it slows down loading and smoothness of browsing.
