Have received a few pleas for help from mates who have used AVG 8 free,it has caused many issues for them.The windows firewall only blocks access to your PC.

Personally I can recommend Bullguard.I have been using it for over 2 years without any problems.

It is best to buy the OEM ver of Bullguard,its half the price.Try ebay.

I have used AVG for years and it is excellent. Try AVG8 free. There is never any need for home users to pay for security.
The windows firewall is more than enough if you are on BB.

Download the free version of Spyware Terminator click here (don't install the web guard application) and coupled with a little common sense you will be more than protected.
With the money saved on 'security systems' you can buy an external drive or a 8Gb flash drive. These will be of much more use to you than wasting money on security and will save your bacon.

up until recently when I experienced problems with it. I switched to Avast and it's superb, so would recommend it. It's free too.

Do remember to remove Norton with the Norton Removal Tool available on their website.
