A good Firewall computer program ( i currently have NONE)

Ewido and AVG, not the best, but not too bad.... go to www.f-secure.com and try their beta version of Internet Security 2007. It is all three

I didn't post this for no reason man... I read the sticky about spyware sites, (mind you i didn't visit them all) im looking for some free ones (permanent that are decent) not free to try, like a free 30 day trial.. Such as webroot and stuff

So if you here to complain about my post then just leave..

these aren't proactive solutions....they dont protect you. you get infected, run their sw to get rid of the junk. f-secure's Internet security beta version runs in the background and blocks spyware before it gets on your pc...plus it is free...
