Security Software

  Gran 20:40 14 Nov 2003


I'm thinking about upgrading my Norton stuff to 2004. However does anyone know if it is necessary to install all three main packages together, ie Internet Security and Antivirus and Firewall. Or will Internet Security on its own suffice? This isn't made clear in the advertising information.

Also, are the upgrade versions generic? Will the Internet Security upgrade work on Firewall 2002 and System Works 2002 for example??

My response is dont use it. Just from experience and what is available nowadays is much more reliable, not to mention free

Thanks for that. I had a look round the Helproom and it seems that AVG and Zonealarm will more than meet my needs...
