Hello again, I have been running McAfee (antivirus + firewall) for a year. The update subscription is going to expire tonight. I am not renewing it, as I am choosing a free alternative this time. I have installed AVG Free Edition for the antivirus part. (Is it a good choice?) For the firewall part, I have downloaded ZoneAlarm Free, but have not installed it yet. (Is it a good choice?) My question(s): Would my current McAfee firewall continue to work well without future updates? I guess the virus definition updates are only relevant for the antivirus part. Or - do I need to uninstall McAfee and install ZoneAlarm Free or some other firewall instead? I understand my wireless ADSL router has a hardware firewall built into it. Should I switch? Thanks in advance for your advice - I have learnt it is in my best interest to follow it!
