anti virus and firewall compatability

  Josie29 13:59 30 Jan 2005

I'm using norton internet security, AV and FIREWALL, is it ok to run other AV and F/W protection at the same time or will they conflict?

Run only one firewall and one anti-virus programme, mixing with other products may or will most likely cause problems.You can mix certain adaware and anti trojan programmes, like AdAware SE,SpyBot,a2,Spyware Blaster, all are available as free downloads, and all work very well together.

Norton is thirsty on resources, and the usual recommendations are for products like Grisofts AVG and ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm, both can be obtained for free.
