click here and download AVG free edition anti-virus and click here and download Outopost free firewall. They both cost NOTHING and come highly recommended by many forum members inc. yours truly. Not much point in paying, is there?
Changed from Norton to McAfee after the yearly subscription for live updates ran out. Find the the McAfee a better programme to use. It doesn't cause any problems when I need to do a system restore, Norton had to be un-installed to do a system restore or it would cause problems on re-start.
All have their favourite free home use options, I've used AVG & ZoneAlarm, without any problems, but prefer avast! anti virus click here and Kerio firewall click here . Here is another posting on freeware that may be of use click here
The thing I do not like Mcafee is that it starts a few processor and you can not stop them just by simply quit the program.
When I write CD/DVD or edit video, I do not connect to internet (switch off BB router). I want to quite Anti Virus, but I cannot simply quite Mcafee, I have to stop a few processes. I hate complicated program. I use Mcafee because it is provided from my workplace.
