    I first tried Nortons...major resource hog and hard to remove then loved NOD32 by eset. I am currently using Zone Alarm Security Suite that does spyware/av/spam blocking/IM scanning/firewall/ pretty much covers all bases. It is not the cheapest and can be a pain to configure after first installation as you get heaps of popups messages asking for permission for programmes to use the internet etc but providing you know what you want accessing the internet and other files on your computer, bob's your uncle. It learns your setup fast and if unsure, will alert you for a memory jog. I am very happy with it and it seems to pick up a lot of things some of the other programmes miss. I have heard that NOD now does a firewall as well as an Antivirus and that is my second favourite.Regards
    paula :)

    NOD32 is reputed to be the best AV. Often cited here at TSG. I will probably switch to it when my "AVG Pro 7.5" subscription expires
