    Default What internet security do you use...?

    I have just got myself a new PC, because my current one is on it's last legs.
    I have been using Norton security for the past 2 years and I havent had any problems but I have heard that there are some free downloadable security programs that are as good if not better than Norton.
    I just need something that will protect my system when online and email etc.
    I would be interested to know what anyone uses/recommends.
    Ta!

    i've heard AVG are pretty good, I'm running Mcafee virus scan enterprise v 8 with windows xp pro firewall and had no problems, don't need another firewall as the wireless router has one

    as for norton burn in , it thinks it's a secondary o/s and hog's all the system resources, youll find your system will slow down quite a bit

    but on the other hand, norton is good software, just need a beast of a machine

    Yep, I would recommend AVG as that's what I end up installing on all the family's PC's.

    When I tried to use AVG I could only get a month's use without downloading again.

    McAffee and Norton, although they're both very good at what they do, tie up enormous memory and unless you've got an absolute beast of a processor, make your new machine run sloooooooow. Oh, and you have to buy them. Eugh!

    I was recommended Avast! antivirus by a few of the computer boffs on here. 1. It's available for free download
    2. It doesn't tie up your whole computer
    3. It stops everything the others do, and more
    4. It automatically updates its virus library - free
