Is a paid for computer security system worth it?

    I just let my subscription to Trend Micro run out, I also have the
    free versions of
    Advanced System Care and a-squared along with Malwarebytes' anti-
    malware along
    with the computer firewall turned on.

    My question is there any big advantage to having an automatic undate
    version like
    Trend Micro or with the others I mentioned or is doing the updates
    good enough for the most part?

  2. Manual updates can become annoying in the end. Free utilities
    allow automatic updates too.

    In Windows use this free antivirus:


    And this free firewall:

    PCTools Firewall:

    They both have automatic updates and I think they do a job
    as good as any other paid for utility. For those in need
    of every 5 minutes updates they can also upgrade those tools
    to paid for software, but I think it is an overkill for the
    average user.
