      If you want a decent firewall then Comodo is pretty good. It comes as a suite with AV, but you can install either separately or both together.

      hi, thanks for the links. i started using comodo and i also downloaded adblock for IE8 and chrome if that's what you meant. interestingly comodo had the option to change the dns ip address or something like that. as this is the only pc in use other than my laptop, i decided to let it change this. just thought i would check see if that was a good idea or not.

      i made most of the changes hardware secrets suggested for security. the only one i could not tweak was remote access. it looks like it is disabled, but it won't let me enable it. thanks again,,,gordon

      This changes the DNS servers from the Sky ones to Comodos, which are reputedly more secure. Many use the Open DNS servers which do much the same sort of job. You should probably have a read through this for more information -

      I think the version 2 routers come with Remote Access disabled in the firmware. This is for security reasons. It is not required and will cause no problem.
