he is just tired of the update licenses and it keeps wiping his cookies and passwords on cleanup with no way to select what is to be cleaned, and he wants something cheaper. First I know that with system mechanic he has kaspersky virus and firewall software which I have heard is very good. If he wants cheap I said to get avg free as antivirus and zone alarm free, crap cleaner and spysweeper. Total cost is $19.99
But is this a good setup for what he is trying to replace?
Just advise them to use common sense and any combination should work as well as any other. If they are going to be carefree and venture into the bad neighborhoods online, then nothing will be 100% effective, regardless what you spend. If they are somewhat responsible in what they do online then your friend should be safe with anything you suggest. -- HUH!!!
