    I've finally had enough of Norton, and I'm uninstalling it. :D

    I have used Norton Personal Firewall and Norton Antivirus for a few years now, so I'm pretty used to how it works.
    What does everyone recommend I switch to?

    I want a very comprehensive firewall, as internet security is my biggest concern.
    The things I liked about Norton were:
    -Never had pop-ups or ads
    -Could just leave it alone and didn't have to mess with settings very much
    -updated pretty simply
    -Kept me completely safe and virus free for about 3 years

    I basically just want an AV and firewall that I can install and then forget about...... don't want to be messing with settings all the time and updating etc.
    If there are any free programs, so much the better, but I'm happy to pay.

    So anyway.... whats everybody using?..............

    no sig so not sure what os.

    you gotta do some updating for every new site you don't want blocked.

    i'm behind a router and use nav on all systems.

    if i had to i'd use za.
