Hi Folks

Was just wanting to know which firewall + AntiVirus you would all suggest as ive had previous issues with my current zone alarm firewall so when i build my new p.c in the next couple weeks id like to install it with the best security money can buy

i Do quite fancy the Kaspersky security suite , your views would be very gratefully received

Money doesnt buy security. Zone alarm is defined as the best firewall. And AVG or Avast free are chosen by millions of people. You could go for the pay for versions of both app types and that would give you some extra layers of protection but ZA and AVG or Avast are the way to go.

By money doesnt buy security. You can pay a million pounds worth of a safe but if it isnt up to the job it isnt worth the money. Nod32 is apparantly the best AV by the way but I have never heard of problems with anything else as in a lab anything can be made to be better than a rival.

Avast, AVG or ZoneAlarm.
Take your pick which one to use?

i too have gone back to nis 2007 after a spot of disaterous experimenting with others, never had a problem with it

Watch where you download avg from one of the Downloads isn't avg but a trojan.
AVAST it better IMO than any pay for anti virus programmes.

AVAST .that's one program i would pay for if i had to.always updates, and its no problem.

Any Firewall or Antivirus is only as good as the person setting it up makes it. Zone Alarm and AVG are both fairly easy to set up as they have good memories, After you have told them what to accept and what to reject a few times it becomes automatic .Money does not necessarily buy the best

PC-Cillin suite from Trend Micro. I find Norton makes my system a bit sluggish.
