Default Re: AV and Firewall

Alright, here's my purchase list...

Zonealarm Security Suite (On second note, what's the difference between this and pro and which do you recommend?)

Nod32

Any last-minute appeals? :P

Another question... why is Norton on the Top 10 list at PCworld?

In addition... nod32 isn't even on this list... should I still get it?

Read my last post... why AVG? Is it really that good yet free?

Yeah man. If you want to spend some money, go for McCafe or Norton. McCafe's latest products are more user friendly, but Norton's new products tend to be a bit invasive. Just try AVG, then if you're not satisified with the performance, spend some cash and get a name brand anti-virus.

I just got ZoneLabs... isn't that better than both firewalls? And what about nod32 for AV?

Zonealarm makes great firewalls. Nod32 is a bit dodgy, I'd say. Give AVG a chance, man!

Omg people, Get it right. Avast is the best. It takes like no memory and everytime I get a virus it find its and deletes it. and you also get a key for free that last 12 months than you just email them again and you get a other one again



Home Edition download:
http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

To get your key emailed:

Yeah, I've used AVG before... my God, too many differing opinions on AV's. I profess Spysweeper is the best anti-spyware though...

Here's what we got for AV:
McAffee
Avast
Nod32
Norton

And even then Spysweeper has competition. I've heard of a Counterspy... anyone heard of it? I also need to find out which AV is best.

I already have Zonelabs, but I would like to see comparisons between it and McAffee (Internet Security Suite/Firewall)
