    Aegis does sound great. But after reading Wolfie’s0827’s post, I say, I do agree with him. Avast is a lot better.

    Nice collection, thanks!

    aeGis:

    As a better alternative to aeGis I have found Avast, not only do you get the controls that aeGis provides but you get control from Avasts’ website as well as anti-virus software. You can download it from Google play store.
