      Kasparsky paid for currently 17 for 1 year 3 pc pack from Amazon.

      Superb and it works on XP x64 when very few others do.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      Hi I am using xp home verbals seems to work ok after install looks for updates thats when verbals start good idea also like the compact tester you can put in a corner and it is out of the way. If we were Voting from 1 to 10 Avast I`d give it an 8 the comodo a 7 until I can work out the balloons.

      AVG 8 the latest can be time consuming
      Zone Alarm Firewall
      Both free. Both do there job when you have something that works you tend not to check on it so I needed a change
      Avast anti virus if you want some verbals
      Comodo firewall
      Have voted can you guess the one
      Steve

      Norton NIS 2009 user here. I bought a 3 licence pack from PC-Business world for less than 20 and it's the full package, not an upgrade!
      I also have AVG on my Win7 box as I have no more Norton Licences!

      Personally, I've always believed that it doesn't really matter which one you use, just as long as you keep it up-to-date and use a bit of common sense when browsing!
      I stick with Norton because I understand how it all hangs together and it's not expensive.
      Stick with what you know and understand!
