    To me, I'm evaulating F-Secure's Internet Security Suite which includes AntiVirus and Firewall.

    AVG and Norton 2002

    the thing is, i still get infected with viruses..and it's unavoiadble cuz i got them from Kazaa :damn:

    some viruses are detected by either one of the AVs so it's better to use both of em

    AVG is good ... I found Norton took over the computer too much!!
    A good firewall also helps... I use Kerio :thumbsup:

    Whatever you do, don't install Norton to disk. I mean that Norton cannot be uninstalled from the computer once you put it on. Instead, run the scan from the CD every time, unless you want to keep the program permanently fused to the operating system. Also, many viruses out there disable the functionality of Norton, rendering the disk install useless. Since compact discs are read-only, it only makes sense that you should use the CD program to scan your computer instead of the installing it on the disk.

    Really? I was actually wondering if I should get that, since I haven't been too inpressed with Norton's stuff in the past.

    But maybe this time they've really done something nice.

    I had 2004 and had no problems with it. To be honest the only time I've had trouble with Norton is when I illegally got it from someone but since I bought the two latest, I've had no worries!!

    Norton Anti-Virus 2004 and Internet Security. Like their interface. Comes with firewall and pop-up blocker. In other words, forget Win XP SP2!

    Yep, SP2 is better then nothing, but unfortunatally, it doesn't really offer anything that good. Zonealarm is much better than Windows Firewall, and SP2 still doesn't offer any spyware/virus protection. It really doesn't seem as great to me, as all the hype makes up it up to be. :thumbdown

    Don't get me wrong though, SP2 is better then nothing, but there are much better commercial alternatives availible.
