  1. I know you have probably been asked this question a million times. But what is the best paid for virus program, one that does pritty much everything. I have a computer and two laptops that i want to put it on. I do not want Norton because it slows down computers. But in your experience what has been the best? That you can trust, easily updates online? etc etc... Thanks!

    You need a
    1. router
    2. firewall
    3. and a good AV (as in AVG)
    add Spywareblaster to control bad ActiveX,
    and add this host file to your system

    be sure to config your AV to scan your email and you will do well

    best wishes
