If you have a router...you only need a few things...<br />
<b>AVG is good<CLAMWIN</b><br />
<b>Spyware Doctor PWNS!!!</b><br />
Windows firewall+ClamWIN+the old Jv16 Regcleaner+CCleaner+Comodo...<br />
You won't catch the FLU!!!<br />
That's what I keep on 2 rigs...and they run a bit slower...hell yeah!<br />
The rig with the Comodo...boots in 22 secs...with internet enabled<br />
My wireless accesses the net quicker...BUT THE ZONEALARM IS KILLIN ME!!!

Its all a matter of preference in the end in terms of firewall, Zone Alarm was a pain the first week until it was properly configured, now it does me fine.<br />
Then again I have only tried about 4-5 different firewalls.

</div>ZA does it correct...I use it on 3 PCS that don't do much damage on the net...<br />
I've got a Linux server/softwall that all my connections come through though...<br />
That's a bit advanced<img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> ...<br />
But hackers don't fall behind so why should WE?<img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

</div>Norton is the AOL of AV software. Hogs resources, takes over your computer, rarely effective and you have to pay for that kind of suckage.<br />
<br />
AVG and Avast! are two good free AV programs.

I myself use Trend Micro, I picked up the full suite from BJ's for 25 bucks, and you get free software updates. So I just got upgraded to the 2007 version from 2006. I think it works the best, because it has real time anti virus security.<br />
<br />
I tried pretty much all of them. And I found the Trend Micro to be the best.

</div>Agreed, Avast is awesome. AVG is good as well, my personal preference is Avast though.

My preference is for Kaspersky Anti-Virus personal and for a firewall I use Kaspersky Anti-Hacker. <b>Do not use the combined internet suite version, stick with the two dedicated programs.<br />
</b><br />
Both are easy on system resources once open. The cost online to purchase lic. keys is low and the updates for the anti virus are excellent in thier frequency.<br />
Also the ease of use is excellent with configuration a breeze.<br />
<br />
As for freeware I too would suggest AVG.
