    Per Microsoft there are "known" issues using Norton Anitvirus and Zonealarm. They claim it may be the cause why my computer sometimes freezes when trying to switch users or log off, but then again it could also be a hardware problem.

    Has anyone had this problem? Can anyone out there suggest a better anitvirus and firewall to use with XP? Is "spyware" necessary for a home user? If so, are there any good, free ones out there?

    is,perhaps your confusing it with something else.
