Best Security Software for new build
Nov 18, 2011, 5:44 PM
I am going to build a new gaming pc but wanting to get some security software. It has been a while since i owned a pc and had a few questions.
1) What security do I need? i.e virus, malware etc
2) What brands should i get for each required protection? Willing to spend money, I don't want my new build to slow down
Really appreciate the help
