Just got my broadband router to conect new computer (which has not been connected to internet yet), is there any free anti virus software available worth using? Also will firewall in XP be sufficient or do I need to upgrade this also.

Thanks, tried Zonealarm and couldnt find any free products? AVG seems to have a basic antivirus software which is free, any experience of this?

Zone Alarm Free is free

I've used AVG free for years and its good and would do you nicely. A lot of people on this Forum use it. I'll post the links for you. DO NOT load on more than one anti virus, EITHER choose AVAST OR AVG not both, this is very important.
AVAST you have the link

AVG free click here

Free firewall Zone Alarm click here

as per tb
top three on link are good but install only one
