security question?

  Daxsimus 22:51 22 Oct 2004

Hi, I have just set up a network with 2 comps both running win xp. The host has norton internet security installed which has its own firewall and norton antivirus.(I've disabled windows firewall on the host.) The second I've installed Avg antivirus and have the windows firewall switched on. Is this sufficient security? As Iuse to use zonealarm but it interferes with the network so have had to disable it on the host comp.
Any ideas welcome.

It is advisable to use a better firewall than windows own Sygate is pretty good other members may have different ones to offer

Is the norton internet security one ok though. I tried instalilng that on the other machine but it wouldn't do it. So have to find an alternative. Will have a look at the one you mentioned thanks
