  1. Its not wise to run without an anti virus. avast! is very good.
  2. kaybee, the only stupid question is the one that is not asked. How about reviewing the comments in this topic. Have a look at: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=19530 We all learned from reading other people's experiences.
  3. Make sure that you remove all traces of McAfee as it will prevent most other anti virus applications from installing. I use Avast! and AntiVir and they are both good.
  4. I like http://www.mirekw.com/winfreeware/mwsnap.html
  5. One of the reasons why I dumped AVG was the abusive Moderators on its forum. I use Avast! Free on 2.4GHZ P4 XP Home and 2.8GHZ P4 Pro SP3 systems. I use Avira Free on my old 500MHZ PIII XP Pro SP3 that I use to test IE8 beta2.
  6. That reminds me of an old Christmas joke. The three wise men attend the baby Jesus and present their gifts and are gathered around when Joseph asks "How come you wealthy folk attend here with your clothes all covered in soot and grime?" Where one of the magi replies "We came from afar followin yonder star." Its a big hit down in the US Southern States at Christmas time.
  7. I thought I would try Comodo firewall on my XP Pro SP3 system and I must say that I am totally un-impressed! 1. It installed the Ask toolbar without my permission and prior knowledge that it would be installed and activated. 2. It detected several false positives such as SDFIX.exe that I had downloaded myself and a Microsoft Windows SP3 fix. I only let it run for a short while until I became totally disgusted by the false positives it found. I eradicated it from my system. I have read about Comodo's rampant false positives but I am amazed at how true the claims are.
  8. I use Avast on my XP Home and my new XP Pro system and Avir on the old PIII. I would use Norton only if it were the only anti virus application available and I had a system with large amounts of RAM to squander to its needs.
  9. My ISP DSL SpeedStream 6520 modem has a built in firewall so I only use the Windows firewall just so that the Security Center does not nag at me that I am un-protected.
