    Antivirus


    i have bit defender internet security and malwarebytes installed on my laptop and i just downloaded the comodo firewall, if i install internet security from comodo aswell can i turn the real time protection off in comodo and just have it set up so every weekend it automatically scans my computer???

    i like bit defender and dont want to swap again but i would like to have two ways of scanning my computer so i can be sure i am safe and bit defender isn't missing anything...

    Bit Defender IS should have its own firewall and along with Malwarebytes you have all you need. I would not waste my time with Comodo.

    I run Norton IS and Malwarebytes on my system.

    What is wrong with Comodo?

    I don't really care for comodo either.

    I use ESET smart security malwarebytes and superantispyware.

    that's more than enough.

    I agree with the other's, running Bit Defender and Malwarebytes should keep your system protected quite well. I personally install either Norton IS or Avast and Malwarebytes on computers that need the protection.

    Bit Defender is a better product, so no need to add Comodo. Check the results at AV-TEST.
