Default Re: The Norton Alternative?

Personally for spyware, I use Spybot Search and Destroy.
I found Ad-Aware seemed to remove my Internet connection (NTL) around the second time running it, and I had to do backups to get it back. Seriously annoying.

I never really liked Norton, I prefer Avast! and Ad-Aware.

Zone alarm raped my computer! I installed it then restarted and then it showed the "would you like to start in safe mode" black screen. And if i click run windows normally it would just restart sooo screw that i'm gonna use something else
