I have a firewall on my pc and my router so i am double safe. lol
It wasn't actually me, (as i've explained) the person in question DID update
as I've also explained, this is a very rare situation, and will only realyl ever occur once every few days after a virus release when definitions are being written.

what I do find concerning is that I never have virusses, (though my AV detects virusses as they are comming onto my conputer, (I.e the resident shield works)
but you claim norton is better because you only have a few viruses every three days or so?
How in that situation is norton actually better?

Tokinbudz; I don't really want to have to edit your post about Giancarlo getting 'stupidier' - which is not even a proper word - and that he's an idiot. Until CNet or another large and respected site comes up with a Reveiw of Giancarlo, you can't really back up the claim But yeah; you've only been here a little while so have a look at the announcements, we don't really like insults...

Although of course; you can't really say that your arguments can't be flawed ever Giancarlo anyway It is a little presumptuous. They do after all say the more you know the less you know you know.

So far Giancarlo is the only one to have posted any backup to his claims? Not of course that it matters - McAfee is the best anyway. Not of course that its reviewed better in CNet - it got 7.7 too, it more of a personal opinion when it comes down to McAfee and Norton - they are exactly the same in most fashions except that Norton does other things in the more expensive Editions.

ZoneAlarm just really annoys me Its just a Firewall anyway isn't it?

Is that question rhetorical?

As I pointed out just over 50% of his evidence contradicted his points...

Gian lost the argument, and I thnk this was confirmed (in my mind) in a series of Private messages where, (as usual) he did little more than call me names and say how great he was, and how he couldn't be faulted...

I'm in two minds whether to even press submit, since it'll undoubtably start another rouund of Gian telling people how stupid they are...
