Are there "basic" versions that do NOT want to manage my passwords and/or credit card information? (like so many other products want to point to as some wonderful "feature" aka: wonderfully packaged and sold security risk IMHO when there is no way to actually stop the underlying processes from still gathering and storing your passwords etc...)
I am very particular about system resource use, running process, and communication ports being held open. (as another product wanted to hold 24 ports open at times - in port matched loop-back pairs... totally wasted resources, running process, services, threads, and handles.)
Will these products potentially cause any unsolicited inbound packets to show up at my router? (I had issues with other products that were not using TCP/IP communication correctly causing hundreds a week at times)
All that I want and need is coverage for 3 PCs with:
- Basic Anti-virus that is lightweight and reliable.
- Basic Internet Security (without any account, identity, or credit card information storage)
- Basic Firewall management functionality (able to block and report attempts at intrusion)
Which product would fill my needs if any?
Thank you very much for any clear and honest information!
