    I need a firewall and virus protection program. What are the best combination software packages if any.

    Also, is McAfee Guard Dog simliar to a firewall program? I have access to Version 3.0. Is it necessary to have the latest version which is 3.12?

    Just my opinion,

    I use McAffee for virus protection, Has not let a virus through in 4 years. Just ensure you update at least weekly.

    My firewall is Zonealarm (Free Version) can be downloaded here

    Good Luck

    njgirl2002,

    Welcome to TSG.

    Zonealarm is free and one of the best so it is a great deal.

    I use Norton AV. Some have trouble using McAffee.
