  4. Sygate Personal Firewall is also a good, basic comprehensive firewall, where as the Zone Alarm firewall is more flashy.

    proactive vs reactive

    protection comes is two flavors: proactive and reactive.
    all AV software is reactive; you got the bug and now need to deal with it.
    proactive protection are things like a router and a good firewall.
    these 'immunize' the system from catching the bugs in the first place :giddy:

    the last issue is the naive user; he/she that clicks any/everything

    once the browser has access to web pages and the email system starts receiving,
    your system is actually inviting inputs to your system -- some good, some bad.
    at this point, your first line of defense is a GOOD USER and then a
    good AV system to scan downloads.
