      thanks very much for the advice everybody - having just discovered this forum, what a find!

      Have been checking out other threads here today and ended up accessing the router and making it more secure, tweaking system settings to increase speed - and the above has provided some good pointers on the replacement of security..

      Cheers!!!

      The free version of Avast gets updated daily, infact sometimes there are 2 or 3 updates a day.

      Thanks, I wasn't aware of that!

      Useful to know, actually, as we have got Avast running as our AV protection in the (not very often used now) "Boot Camp'd" Windows XP partition on the iMac.

      I have previously used Avast for AV protection before when we had Windows computers and found it to be a reasonable product.

      We now have only one "pure" Windows computer and that os runnign Norton Internet Security 2007, because it came pre-loaded, but the subscription expires in about a month and I am pondering whether to renew or switch to something else, hence my interest in this thread!
