I've been using Norton Internet Security 2004 for quite some time. I'm thinking of switching to a different protection software.

Here are my questions:
I have a router and I've read before that you can use that as a hardware firewall. How reliable is it?
Is the Windows Firewall good enough? Can I use the Windows Firewall and router firewall at the same time for added protection?
I have windows anti-spyware, is it a good enough anti-spyware program?

I would appreciate it if you can recommend me an anti-virus program and firewall that are free and reliable.

Be advised that you will have to be VERY careful about how you remove Norton. Go to the Symantec site and find the current (They change almost daily!) method for your specific program(s)/suite. Good luck, for this is not easy to accomplish.

I tried Norton Internet Security 2006 and it found a trojan and a dialer (Norton 2004 didn't find it before). Its a great program but I can't afford it at the moment. Hopefully AVG and Comodo will do the same work with no cost.
