A viable alternative to those gigantic companies like Amazon, Google, Apple, Microsoft,eBAY, Paypal, Starbucks... since the EU is struggling with little presence in global brand strategy in eCommerce.

you can't win, western governments won't buy Chinese networking hardware on fear of eavesdropping.....so now we install their security software all over our personal computers ....

I'm not making any points....just chuckling...

how do we know the western governments don't do it? they don't need to tell people. I can confirm that over 95% of Chinese people use 360 Internet Security in China.

Are you a new resident to UK from Europe? There is eavesdropping for your dustbin here and CCTV everywhere, and GCHQ here the biggest eavesdropper since WW2, and all cloud services screened for contents, and litter police, dad arrested for leaving kid for 10 mins to but Calpol., the next step is the obese and fat police to eavesdrop on your shopping bills and what you eat.

Beat in mind this is the Total Security suite - the Internet Security one (av only, no other crap) does NOT run on non-admin accounts, it's bonkers. That said, I've just switched to 360TS and it's great.

Don't forget to enable BitDefender scan engine in settings - settings are only available when launched as admin.

Edit- be aware of what it cleans during the 'junk' cleaning - I lost a lot of my installer caches which means they can't run when you update or want to uninstall apps, a pain in the ass.

The top three are paid for ones, but really are worth it. You can usually get them for under £10 if you know where to look. Sometimes you can even get them free, as follows:

Bitdefender (They always have free promotions every now and again)
Kaspersky (Free for Barclays customers)
F-Secure (Free for Virgin Media customers)

Microsoft Security Essentials/Windows Defender is rubbish, and basically should never be used. They regularly come at the bottom of independent lab tests.

Lastly if you have to use a free anti-virus and can't use the above ones I have recommended. Use Panda Antivirus, this is the best free anti-virus software on the market, and virtually always comes out top in tests.

No, in theory you are right but in practice you are dreaming in a model of the world where each person owns just one single PC. One wouldn't buy 5 copies of £50 for five PCs = £250 per year, as an example, because not every one wants tip top the best for each and every PCs.

Not doubting you, but could you link to some Panda AV test results etc? I was aware of 360 kicking ass after a lot of googling but found nothing similar for Panda

Did you even bother to read the comment?

Clearly not, as you would have seen that I wrote you can usually get them free. And if you look on eBay, some top sellers sell the codes for less than £10.

I also wrote Panda Antivirus as an option, which is not only free, but slightly better than Qihoo.

Read my comment again, not every one in the world lives in a dreamy world like you think where 500 million people buy from eBAY like you think they do. Go to the software suppliers' web sites and other agents find me £10. This is a free world, and this is free software, there is freedom of choice. You don't have to dictate to them to buy from eBAY something theoretically the best. I am just bringing a free choice and is a good choice.

You are talking about theoretically better, there are 80 million Avast Free editions users for example, this is not the best either compared to what you are suggesting, it is their freedom of choice. I have just putting forward another choice here on HOTUKDEAL as another practical choice, not a debate with you on whose willy is the best.

I think this could have some potential, my opinion is that being an AV Application coming from China, their possibly trying to protect themselves from themselves.

Where did I say everyone should buy from eBay? I didn't, it was just a suggestion. And I didn't say Qihoo was bad, just not the best.

And it's not my fault you have issues reading. Now breathe.

Thanks! I had seen that page, but it's a) October, and b) 360 IS, not TS, which I believe is quite different - indeed, TS can use Bitdefender and/or Avira; also, Panda has much higher false positives which for a parents computer might not be that useful. I'm still not 100% certain of 360TS but it's certainly better than any free option I've seen (and my top three included Bitdefender and Baidu)

Besides all these which is better I stress again (as put in my post):-

Usually in security suites, Total Security just has extra features which are not really needed. So the results should be the same for both IS and TS, as they use the same detection engines. And I know it's from October, but that's the most recent one for Windows 8 I could quickly find. I still think Panda is better than Qihoo, but each to their own. Otherwise the three best ones I mentioned earlier are great.

Lastly, Panda only got 10 false positives out of 334,996. Which is nothing really.

Usually, I agree with this But apparently it's not so for 360 from what I can glean from Google. I *think* IS is being left behind in favour of TS but really it doesn't matter - it's so light I don't notice it there, plus Bitdefender integration is great. I'll check Panda again and see how it's improved otherwise I'm going for 360TS or Baidu

You really are obsessed with dreams.

Voted cold, no doubt.

To those whom may concern, 360 is the worst rated security software ever for our chinese (and it will be normally considered as malware). The founder used to founded the worst ad-ware/malware/virus in China (called 3721, aka Yahoo assistant), and there are numerous cases pointing out this company is continuous collecting user's sensitive information. One of the most famous incident is that they accidentally set their cache server to public, as a result you can search any sensitive information on it such as your account, email, password, dob, bank account et cetera.

Instead of investigating whether a software is safe or not, the security rating of each software for them is simply based on whether you paid "review fee" to them, roughly £5000 per unit. Once you paid, you are all good. Even a trojan or virus. I got to say the reputation of this company is such a damn hell in China and everyone knows about it. You guys have absolutely no idea how we fight this company through these years since it can be installed in any second without your noticed.

Please consider this is a kindly reminder and try to avoid it as much as possible. I'm a polite and civilized, but I only can use the f-word on software such as 360.
