comment Is there any reason in particular encryption keys aren't arbitrarily large?
@BrianRogers where do you get that from? A 2^100 bit key is 2^100 bits?

Since a 128-bit AES key would be impractical to brute force, and AFAIK there are no known hacks, does this mean that the perfect encryption algorithm has been discovered and there isn't much research in the field of encryption?

I don't think just because it's a VPN means it doesn't keep logs, where did you here that?

comment What security products are necessary or advised for a home computer running Windows?
The point of my question was to get some objective information so I can have my own opinion. I'm serious, I agree it's a matter of opinion which AV is best but can I have some facts to base my decision on? There's a big different between an antivirus that is free and one that costs lots of money and one that doesn't do anything and one that makes the system slow. For example compared to Norton MSE is fast and free but there must be some pros to Norton otherwise it wouldn't be in existence.

Is MSE along with the Windows firewall enough? According to here it is answers.microsoft.com/en-us/protect/forum/mse-protect_start/… Why is it sometimes numerous other programs are used e.g. combofix hijackthis, rkill as seen here techspot.com/community/forums/virus-and-malware-removal.28
