    I see no need for one of them, Ccav and CFW have same cloud feature, and regarding Firewall I prefer CFW

    Because the Internet security creates high CPU on my system. So I only wanted to opt for this option. Auto containment is off on the Firewall.

    CCAV is the Antivirus.
    CFW is the Firewall.

    Yo Yo Yo Dogg,

    Looks pretty good.

    Just out of curiosity, why did you remove ZAL?

    Let us all know what you think of Bitdefender. Even though it's getting hammered in Da Hub, it still is doing well in professional testing.

    With ZAL after each update I was fed up of having no protection, but I have no right to complain as I got the software for free, the company is fantastic and so is their products protection. I have no illfated words towards this product apart from praise.

    Bitdefender's real time protection for me in testing is good. But I personally it's too much of a resource hog for me, but the protection this product offers is superb.

    Not a big issue, it is just a little bit safer. All layers help in the protection your computer.
    It's the same as setting UAC from default to always notify.
    You can always try Bandizip next to 7-Zip and see if you if you like it.
    Will try and see what I like about it too!

    Thanks for the tip Gandalf.
