    Hello,

    What is the difference between these three?
    - 360 Total Security
    - 360 Internet Security (160 MB) All-in-One
    - 360 Browser

    Which one better to install?

    What will happen if I install all of the 3? Will Windows consider them 3 different anti-virus 3rd party applications and may cause BSODs?

    Crap.
    360 Internet Security disabled the Built-in Windows Defender so I uninstalled it.

    Damn, 360 Total Security also disables Windows Defender.
    360 Total Security did system clean up and it cleaned 1.6 GB of Junk Files in C:/

    Please can anyone tell me what are these Junk files that get stored in C:/
    Since I am unable to use 360 because it disables Windows Defender, is there any other application that also clean disk space and clean junk files without disabling Windows Defender?

    Any antivirus that you install in Windows will disable Windows Defender. In Windows8, Defender acts as an antivirus and it's not advisable to have multiple antivirus solutions installed as they can conflict with each other.

    Neither, just use CCleaner and Malware bytes free version.

    So, is 360 Total Security better than Windows Defender?

    Most on those lists have piss-poor customer support.

    Personally, I wouldn't touch 360 Total Security or any other Qihoo product unless you're from China....

    If u buying the lincense anyway i would go for Kaspersky Pure or Kaspersky Internet Security. It's the best, blocks ads,and idiotic pop-ups from unwanted sites. Read about features. I have seen lots of people getting stuck with avast free but running update while im ingame is kinda joke. It's ok that there is a game mode, but idont want to do the switch when kaspersky does that auto:D But if u play legit games and downloading movies than you dont need protection, just a good adblock plugins for browser+ blockunload script for greasemonkey.

    A better, free solution, would be Panda Cloud Antivirus. I've had better luck with it than I did with Kaspersky.

    Neither would I, but they are better than Windows Defender.

    "Better" is rather subjective. Most on that list typically fail in "real world" usage. Doesn't really matter much how well an antivirus does in a lab test, if it fails in real-world usage. Kaspersky regularly scores exceptionally well in lab tests, but in my experience....more often than not, it fails in real-world usage.

    I remember trying out Kaspersky AV at work since we were trying to get another AV to replace the one we have been using while it was good but it wanted to lockup our 64bit computers.

    So we are on F-Secure and it turns out to be a pretty good but sometimes you will have to tinker with it to allow stuff that it blocks.

    Damn.
    360 Security is a Total Damn.
    It messed up with my Windows 8.1 sometimes it starts slow now and sometimes starts normally and it mess up with the mouse pointer...
    I have re-installed windows two times because of it and this will be the third time.

    Find a better antivirus solution. That's my recommendation.
