    I'm killing myself by not being able to decide. Which internet security is better? I'm currently using COMODO, and I'm just curious if there's anything better.

    Absolutely, I chose Avast.
    but, if you want more options or want more detail. you can use Comodo Internet Security (the firewall is strong with alot settings)

    Well, again up to personal choice but when you are meaning AVG, Avast or Comodo are you meaning the Internet Security or the just the AV?

    If I had to choose out of the them it would have to be Avast + Comodo Firewall, because of Avast great detection rate and Comodo's Firewall, they make a great combination.

    My choice Avast + Comodo Firewall.

    Well, in that case then my choice would still be the same, Avast + Comodo Firewall.

    Oh, okay. Also, do you know which internet securities are the lightest on your computer? Cause my computer has a tiny ram and hard drive!

    Well for Internet Suite I would go for Comodo Internet Security since it packs with decent features also if you are an advance user too.

    It is impossible for any of us to give your good advice without knowing more about the complete situation.

    There is not such a thing as better. It all depends on your user experience, your computer habits, your computer specifications, software and hardware compatibility, how often your get infections, etc.

    The most simple solution with good protection would be Avast with Windows default firewall.

    What is your current security setup and is it effectively protection you?

    Thanks.:D

    My choice is Comodo, if you are looking for software that is easy to use you should try Avast.

    All these suites are good (Don't Forget Common Sense).
    Avast: Beginner
    AVG: Intermediate
    COMODO: Advanced

    Avast Internet Security for non-experienced user and Comodo Internet Security for medium and advanced users.
    AVG needs some improvements before being a real option.

    In my opinion:
    Avast is much more simple than AVG. Let's get an example of a virus alert, AVG requires user interaction, where Avast doesn't (This have advantages and disadvantages). I also find Avast's GUI to be more clear, making it more user friendly than AVG.

    If you want all-in-one suite, then Comodo without question but if you like to combine or just an AV, then avast. If you don't mind having more advanced AV then go for Comodo AV.

    Test it in virtual machine and see if you come along with it (I am not only thinking of malware testing!)

    Don't use AVG, it's just a bloated resource hog, even now.
    Avast's antivirus is definitely one of the best, if not the best, free security products out there (of those I've tried already).
    Comodo has some good free products as well, primarily it's firewall. I usually used Avast's free AV with Comodo Firewall.
