    What PC protection to get?

    Banned
    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)

    this site compares av products

    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) - free.avg.com/

    Zone Alarm (Firewall) - zonealarm.com/sto…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 !

    15 day free trial if you want to check it out 1st.......

    The download thread in my signature has some handy links.

    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.

    Might give this a go as a friend has it and says it does the trick! Cheers

    av = use avast
    firewall = use comodo
    anti spyware - use superantispyware

    all free & guarenteed to protect you (never had a problem with this set up in 3 years :thumbsup:)
