    AVG free is a much better product than either Symantec or McAfee, best of all it`s free. You`ll also need a Firewall such as the free Zonalarm.

    You`ll also notice, it won`t hog your systems resources like the other two, so your system may well run faster into the bargain.

    I`ve been using AVG for a couple of years and have never had any problems whatsoever.

    Regards Howard :)

    Edit: Sorry Don, our posts have obviously crossed.

    I use the free AVG antivirus and the paid-for Agnitum Outpost Pro firewall.
    Never had a problem in YEARS.
