What Internet Security

  DAKAR 17:27 07 Feb 2007

I have Norton Internet security at present that is coming up for its annual subscription and just wondered if anybody has any thoughts on a better programme or is Norton ok
Many thanks

I use avg and zonealarm and have had no problems so far. I have been using the net for many years now.

When Norton expires you may need click here= to remove it. Then

Ad-aware click here
Spybot click here
Superantispyware click here
Spywareblaster click here
AVG Antispyware click here
Windows Defender click here
AVG Antivirus click here
ZoneAlarm click here
A-squared click here

All free and compatible.

I was faster than VoG™ - this does not happen often.

Only because VoG was probably collecting all the URLs...

VoG's the man :-)

F-Secure Security Suite 2007 I have been running this for about 18 months, and I am impressed (my version is 2006)it updates every hour auto, and so far nothing has got through. Better still if you are a Barclays online customer the AV part is free and to upgrade to the suite is £9.95

mattyc_92 you are totally correct I wish I had his knowledge and database.

i have tried and cant find a simpler, safer security suite than norton 2007, removed it once, never again!

I personally have free tools installed:

ZoneAlarm click here
AVG click here
Adaware click here
A-Squared click here
CCleaner click here
Spybot S&D click here

I have been using this combination for about 2 years now (used to use Avast! instead of AVG) and haven't had a 'major' virus problem. Infact, any virus I have had within the last 2 years, one of these tools removed them with ease

thanks Vog can I download and install your reccomendations before Norton is removed or will there be a conflict?

  VoG II 18:08 07 Feb 2007

You can download them all but don't install AVG or Zone Alarm before you have removed Norton.
