    Which one do you find is the best to use for this? I have only used the Antivirus. I would have to say that I was pleased with it somewhat. Can you use more than one of these at a time to double protect you?
    I would think that wordpress file Monitor Plus would be a good one to have since it sends an email if it senses any changes. I like that idea and think that it would prevent a lot from happening.
