please could I ask members if it is better to download NIS upgrade which is now due or buy the disc online or in shops

Even better is to ignore it and go with one of the free options:

AVAST Anti Virus

Sygate Personal Firewall

Mailwasher free version

and a few of the regular anti-spyware products. All free and just as good as NIV.

Small unobtrusive programme, regular updates, no conflicts, piece of mind, and FREE "happy days"

Thousand of people use the above combination; there is a lot of hype around about the issues of hackers and security and so forth.

A little care about the sites being visited and a regular clean up / check up routine and you will be fine (and a little richer!).

Put any or all of these free downloads on your computer for peace of mind. All are free, work well together, are highly recommended and used by many, and have regular free updates.Why buy when you can get a product more worthy of a consideration.Norton is noted for taking a little more resources than normal.

AVG click here Avast click here [use only one of these, as two installed anti-virus programmes may cause problems[.

a2squared click here Adaware click here SpyBot S&D click here Spyware Blaster click here

Firewall click here
