Best Security Software

  rod45 12:16 26 Feb 2010

Hi, just recently had a virus on my pc and had to do a recovery. Can anyone advise me on either the best free security software or the best reasonably priced security software. I had Norton 360 for a while but it really slowed my pc down so i dont want any that will affect the performance.

If running XP or above click here

If running Visa or above no need for seperate firewall!

If on XP or below then use Zone alarm firewall click here

As SirMetal, Microsoft Security Essentials, on research I have done it's better than most pay for solutions. It will be my choice over the paid for software I have used for years.
