    I have a business computer but my employees keep getting trojans, viruses, etc.. on my computer. I have Mcafee on it but it just doesn't seem to be doing a good enough job.

    What do you guys recommend or use for a good protection package for removing this crap and preventing this crap from getting on in the future?

    Thanks.

    I've switched from AVG to Avast recently and like it a lot. Plus you can activate it to scan when the screensaver activates, which is good for people who never manually do scans.

    When it comes to malware, most AV programs are mediocre at best. Some a bit better than others, but overall they just can't keep up with emerging threats. I've used AVG, Avast, and MS Security Essentials with decent detection rates. I utilize a cocktail of tools to deal with infections including but not limited to:

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
    ComboFix
    Super Antispyware
    HijackThis
    Foundstone's free tools
