Any recommendations for the above, for a friends computer running windows 98? Preferably ones that don't conflict with each other or anything else. Thanx

I vote for Sygate - to me it seems much less resource hungry.

AVG without doubt best for anti-virus.

I use AVG from Grisoft with ZoneAlarm firewall. The combination has been flawless since and both works great! Both completely free by the way!
