Top 5 Internet Security Suites 2011

Many of you search which is the best antivirus over internet. But you have to know the difference between antivirus and internet security suite.

An antivirus doesn't have a firewall, parental controls, anti phishing control, user control etc.  Internet security has all features including powerful antivirus in it. So it's better to have internet security rather than antivirus alone.

Some of you maintain individual prgrams for individual functions like separate firewall program, separate antivirus, separate malware removal tool. When you have all these in a single engine, there's no need to have all these separately. Having separate programs will impact system's performance too.

Now let us see top 5 Internet Security Suites.

NOTE: This is my personal review and am not evaluating any product. I will give pros and cons only for each of them.
