G`day to everyone. I have a friend who just got a new comp with Norton trial version that has a firewall. He has had people tell him that it is ok to go to porn sites, and that the sites can do no harm to his comp because he has the Norton firewall. I told him I thought he was crazy, but, have no real understanding of just exactly how much protection a firewall can provide versus a porn site(scum of the earth). Any thoughts on this matter would be appreciated.

Those people are nuts - First you should be carful where you go and that is a sure place to get infected

If they must then in addition to a firewall you need a good antivirus - AVG is one and

Get all of these and/or verify you have the current versions

SpywareBlaster 3.4 http://majorgeeks.com/download2859.html
SpyBot V1.4 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2471.html
AdAware SE 1.06 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
MS AntiSpy - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...a2-6a57-4c57-a8bd-dbf62eda9671&displaylang=en (XP and W2K only)

DownLoad them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware, MS AntiSpy (W2k/XP) and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
In SpyBot - After an update run immunize
