I used Kaspersky Labs
Antivirus for a long long time. The Russians know what they do. But at one point my machine couldn't handle it anymore and it became more of a handbrake to the system than any help.
I have not used it for about a year now. Switched to NortonAV and NortonFW and think that AV is slow and either I'm lucky or got a crippled installation - have not had ANY virus alerts so far (well, maybe 3). It is dead slow on email checks. Too slow!
Kaspersky is a good option, but it costs money. It updates every day(!) and generally is good. Have not checked it for a while now... Have a go, I used to love it, maybe you will too.
Re: Firewalls. Norton seems to do the job, and I DO believe having a firewall installed is of vital importance, especially for BroadBand users. Looking for a better Firewall. But I am no good with understanding how exactly it works and how to properly tune it. My Norton one is more/less default setup..
Re NORTON. I never believed in Norton+Windows. Norton Utils were tops for DOS, but then Win version came out and I can only remember having problems with it or not having anything coz it wouldn't work.
BUT I am quite happy with both AV & FW (2003) from them and think it is the best solution for hassle free setup and use for rich/clever users coz it aint free.
I go now.
