Dont get an all in one(cartridges will cost too much)ie£26), get a cannon i450 or i350 printer(cartridges £2.99 for black & £3.49 for colour from Morrisons), and a cannon scanner LIDE 35 . Norton Internet security2005 will give you a firewall, virus checker, spam buster & other programs.
The thing is I need to take photocopies of documents. With regard to Anti-Virus, it comes with E-Trust pre-installed - is this any good? When it is due for renewal, I was going to use free AVG from Grisoft. I believe there is a Firewall within indows XP - is this not sufficient? If not, I was going to use free ZoneAlarm??
