  1. can someone help me as im havin probs with symantec client and my opera web browser. i start a torrent file and try to browse usin opera and it keeps timing out, even IE times out. i uninstalled and they worked fine altho now it means i need a new AV and firewall, i currently have AVG 7.5 email edition and winblows firewall.
     
  2. Personally I think that what you're running is fine, especially AVG, though you may want something a bit better than the Windows Firewall, such as the Zonealarm or Kerio firewalls.

    Get the AVG Antispyware as well.
