    ok, thats what i got, everyone says its great and it seems good for now, any ideas on any of the other stuff?? I need to know the Defrag and Firewall, cause norton hasn't been treeting me all that good lately. And all Norton 2004 products have blacklisted Cd-keys so u can't update them and they will stop working after 3 days. Oh ya, and do you know if the new version of Nod 32 has a feature that doesn't let you shut it down withour the proper password?? Thanks, talk to y'all l8er

    In my view, ZoneAlarm has one of the very best firewalls around, free or pro. Sorry, no personal experience on a defrag utility. But, I can suggest going to WebAttack for disk cleaners.

    No, I do not think that NOD32 has that as a feature, but just to be certain you may think about asking the question on the NOD32 discussion group found here.

    There is a password to protect settings but that would not be the same thing, I think, as password protected shut down of the application.

    I don't know what your OS is; Buzzsaw won't run on W9X.

    I LOVE the program.

    The direct link is in my post. Or, go to downloads.com and search for "Buzzsaw".

    I get all teary-eyed...I'll never have to defrag again!

    OK thanks. I just downloaded it and I'm about to run it now. Some people are saying that it crashes easily, but that could be something else on their computer too. I'll let you know how it works ;)
