    here are some recommendations from available freeware:

    firewall:

    Comodo (http://www.comodo.com),/ or

    PC Tools (http://www.pctools.com/firewall)

    Comodo recently released version 3.0 of its firewall, which adds an intrusion prevention component that's very effectively, though it does take time for it to learn your system, and requires some ongoing attention by the user to make sure programs don't get improperly block. Comodo is one of the strongest firewalls available, freeware or commercial, according to the independent testing site matousec.com.

    antivirus: (listed in order of preference)

    Avira (http://www.free-av.com)/

    AVAST! Home (http://www.avast.com)/

    AVG (http://free.grisoft.com)/

    all provide realtime protection and automatic updates; all have ICSA and VB100 certification, but Avira has been among the highest rated in tests by several respected US and UK computer publications.

    antispyware:

    Spyware Terminator (http://www.spywareterminator.com)/ or

    Spyware Doctor (http://pack.google.com)/

    either one will give you good, realtime protection, along with

    Ad-Aware Free (http://www.lavasoftusa.com)/ and

    Spybot S&D (http://www.safer-networking.org)/ for additional removal ability.

    I have used AVG Anti Virus, Zone Alarm Firewall, Spy-bot Search and Destroy and Ad Aware both spyware killers for years. They are all free for personal use and I have had no trouble with Viruses Trojans etc. AVG does not slow the system down as much as some other products and Zone Alarm allows a lot of personal configuration unlike the Windows Firewall. They can all be downloaded from the following link. http://www.computeractive.co.uk/... On the home page select downloads and then the appropriate category.I also use Windows Defender from the Microsoft site. It is safe to use two anti-spy products but never use more than one A/V as it can cause conflicts. You should run A/V and anti spy weekly. Hope

    You might want to check out Grisoft's AVG. It's free, although they'll try to sell you their paid version. I use it for my virus check, and it works. I've used it for several yrs. A word to the wise-I bought a separate spyware software after my computer became corrupted with malicious spyware and my systems started to fail.

    99% of all internet problems can be attributed to the wrong set of Web browser and Email clients in coordination of the

    AV/ Spyware / Firewall software.

    Get the following, all are free for a safe surfing experience, with proven track records and do not take up

    system resources like Norton or McAffee.

    install in SAFE mode with networking ( hit F-8 at boot time ), run them all in SAFE mode

    with networking as you'll need it for the updates all the programs below will need.

    Turn off RESTORE and the RECYLE BIN temporarily as virii can regenerate / reinfect even if you delete

    them with both services on. After all the scanning and cleaning after a 2nd reboot and one last

    scan do you turn both of them back on.

    ANTI VIRAL

    AVG (free) http://free.grisoft.com/

    FIREWALL

    ZoneAlarm http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/company/prod...

    WEB BROWSER - http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox

    EMAIL use thunderbird. It has a good built in spam filter and learns when you teach it. http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird

    SPYWARE

    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

    http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

    Once you set it all up create 3 email accounts..

    a hotmail or yahoo account for web "verification", this account you will not care if it get spammed

    a sub account ( from the master account )to your ISP that you use for logons, this is the one you use for personal

    emails only to trusted people and banking, ebay and paypal. Never use the account for anything else than that,

    you find spam is low to non existant if you follow this rule, and even if it does become spam laden, then you

    can delete the account and create a new sub account and do all the email updates to ebay, paypal, banks and your

    freinds.

    finally your master account from your ISP, this one you NEVER use, it's only kept for creating sub accounts since

    changing the master account is a real pain.

    and if you have a wireless router follow these tips,

    1. Use WPA encryption (WPA-PSK) it's less crackable then WEP.

    2. Make a passphrase that is upper & lower case and has some numbers thrown in there as well, again harder to crack.

    some like mAkE1t5eCurE0rel53 and as long as possible.

    3. Use MAC access control so only you or authorized PC's can connect (even if you do have encryption turned on)

    4. Turn off DHCP use static addresses.

    5. Turn off SSID (and change it) unless your card really needs it (some do)

    6. Change username/password of access unit front end

    7. Ensure you have the usual firewall enabled on your PC.

    8. Paranoia rules, turn WLAN off if your not using it :)

    one last tip

    control panel---administrator tools--services--messenger

    right clik on it

    stop the service

    then disable it

    save changes

    you shouldnt have bought a computer if you dont wanna pay to protect it. BTW free antivirus software will give you tons of false positives and soon enough you will notice certain programs not working.

    Or pay for security. Don't be a pirate.
