Morning all,

I need good, cheap protection for my PC as my Norton is running out - here come all the Norton haters! Its been OK for me in the past but may try something different. Ideally would want something instore as I need to go out to a PC World etc today anyways.

Only use PC for surfing.

AVG free is decent and won't cost you a penny. (theres also a pro version thats costs a little bit but is also good)

i used to use avg free but dont like the newest version so i now use avast. you'll probably need to download a tool to remove norton as well

Norton just kills your PC resources, thats why people avoid it.

If you want free stuff, get these:

AVG Free (Anti-Virus) - http://free.avg.com/

Zone Alarm (Firewall) - http://www.zonealarm.com/store/content/catalog/products/zonealarm_free_firewall.jsp


If you want to pay, it is £25 (or can get it elsewhere fore free), then I'd highly recommend the Zone Alarm internet security suite.

This will give you a Firewall, Anti-Virus, anti spyware, anti phishing, identity theft protection, anti spam, wireless protection & w hole lot more - all in one package !

I have just started to use Avast! and it is very good and free snf reported above. I just use the firewall on Vista plus the firewall that is is built into my cable router as protection.
