You made youself very clear BobJam, Jim just doesn't want somebody else makng money on an idea he didn't think of first.Lol.".Just Joking Jim" :rofl: But seriously,,I have been exactly in the position you're speaking of. I have a thing called "Caller ID" on my phone,,when it rings I look at the ID screen and see who's calling and then decide if I want to answer it or not. No home should be without it!!!! Really though , if users would take 30 seconds to just make sure their AV is up to date and another minute to update and scan with Mbam or SAS ,,they would really know how easy it is to keep relatively safe and secure. Sometimes they may even like the feeling independence and satifaction of being self-reliant.

Guys, we've went a little off topic with this one, we're looking for a practical setup which can offer an inexperienced computer user maximum PC protection with minimal user intervention - let's stay focused :good:

Sorry Marko, you are quite correct.

One last response to BobJam: I apologize BobJam if the repetition I used caused any offense, that was not my intention at all. It was obviously meant for emphasis but not directed at you mate, more at anyone who might be contemplating such a notion. I have been there done that and learned yet another lesson in life.

OK . . . back on topic.

Though I'm not that familiar with it, I would vote for Jim's candidate of MSE as a realistic middle ground between the fantasy of absolute "set-it-and-forget-it" and minimal user intervention.

I've heard other praises given to that piece of software, and with Jim's added endorsement (though I'm a Microsoft basher at heart), this pretty much pushes me over the line there.

MSE is my vote.

(BTW, Jim . . . no need for apologies . . . I think we're both on the same wavelength: No such thing as "set-it-and-forget-it.")

Panda seems to be making a few leaps up the security ladder. It may still have the same issues with it, but I've been running into quite a few users who are really happy with it. It's all going to be up to Panda to make strides in improvements.The good ones all started somewhere.
