Re: Virus/spyware software
I agree totally with dyserq; Norton does suck, but McAfee is even worse. So whatever you do, stay away from those 2!
If anyone wants a laugh, my cousin's mum had paid £50 for NIS '05, then decided it was rubbish (i'm not sure why, but anyway), so she went and spent another £50 on McAfee!
Anyway, my recommend AV programs are:
Windows XP Pro 17" LCD Monitor (1280 x 1024)
nForce3 250 Chipset Athlon 64 2800+ w/ C'n'Q
1 x 512MB DDR400 CL3 SDRAM 40GB IDE 7,200rpm HDD (8MB Cache)
nVidia GeForce MX420 64MB PCI On-Board Audio
