no experience with 360 total security but using avira & it is working fine except for one minor issue for me.it seems that some avira updates require restart of pc but you will not get any prompt to restart,you will only notice it when updates start failing & log show "engine validation" error.only way i know for this issue is restarting/shut down pc every day instead of keeping it on/hibernation/not restarting for days(i sometimes don't restart my laptop for days but use hibernate to power off).

Okay installed TS360 along with Comodo Firewall.

Lets monitor the performance over the next few days.

how is false positive detection for TS360?

Install avira engine in 360 total security. Performance will be very good I do not face any slow down with it doesn't increase boot time.

I didn't face any false positive during my usage.

If you have a modern system you can use AVG. if system is older then use Total security 360(with avira engine).

not sure but don't install too often.best way is to uninstall it first(select remove license info too during uninstall) when connected to internet & then format/reinstall windows.this way kaspersky activation servers will know that you have uninstalled a particular key.

I had tried that more than 9 times ( i dont really remember the eexact number but lets say 9 times to be safe) and it said, maximum number of activations has been done..
Although before uninstalling, I hadnt removed the licence from the Kaspersky interface.. Maybe that was my mistake there..
This was in KIS 2013 I think

Since this morning, I've been facing a peculiar problem: Bitdefender keeps giving me an alert every minute about a virus in the user - roaming - Microsoft Office folder. I've already made a thread on the BitD forum:

Bitdefender Continously Showing Virus Alert For Same File. - Bitdefender Forum

If anyone here has the time, please read that thread and make some suggestions.

The virus spreads by USB drive, where it creates shortcuts. I had connected my USB drive to a computer and when I connected it later to my laptop, it did show the shortcuts with the original files missing (hidden). But that was two day ago - so did the virus wait for two days before activating itself?

Also, I formatted the USB drive that same day. So has it become clean or can the virus survive a quick format?

It is a bug Avira engine should be already installed just reboot your PC after installing avira engine.
