    Free Protection

    In addition to a firewall you must have full time (active) virus protection and full time spyware protection.

    All the following programs are free.

    ---------------------------------------------

    Full Time (Active) Virus Protection

    If you do not have active virus protection, install only one. All are excellent.

    Try AVG first.

    Norton can be good, however I have two major problems with Norton.

    One is that Norton is a system hog compared to some others and Norton is not as quick to identify and offer solutions to new viruses as some others.

    I use avg and webroot spy sweeper on my system as well as peer guardian, which is great for keeping snoops out.

    Another thing I did when someone tried to hack my ebay, was I set up a port forward through my router.

    Instructions on this great protective measure can be found here.

    This also gives great advise for firewalling.

    After some years of using loose A/V and anti malware I some months in the past put in a Norton trial cyber web protection 2011on my daughters and granddaughters desktops.I constantly felt Norton became an excellent source hog however the main contemporary version became fantastically more desirable. a lot so as that when 3 months I even have put in it on my laptop which looks extensively greater responsive. My determination now till some thing better comes alongside.
