    Default bit OT: advice on security software

    I'm looking for security software suite to protect my pc from viruses, trojans, spam and so on.
    Since I don't want to install everything separately, I think a suite or bundle would be the best choice.
    Any suggestions? What are you guys running?

    I use the Kaspersky suite: K Antivirus Personal + Kaspersky AntiHacker.
    I tried ZoneAlarm Pro + Antivirus before and it sucks. Also tried PCCillin and it's too minimalistic. Norton eats up all your system resources. I don't know about other integrated suites.

    I have no problems with Norton Internet Security.

    The suite also includes Firewall and AntiVirus, among other modules, and it realyl does protect your computer. Viruses, spyware, popup-ads, spam and phishing mails, you name it. There's even a tool that analyzes what you send out and it blocks you from revealing your credit card no unless you confirm it.

    I did decide for Norton in the end, it seemed to offer better features from you guys had to say.

    And I wasn't disappointed, it works just fine on my PC and I am happy so far. So thnaks for helping me out there.

    Still no complaints. Now I am considering an upgrade to Norton Internet Security 2007 and was hoping for your input again?

    Is it working well, are there any worthwhile new features?

    Since running Norton I've not had any problems, the only thing I have noticed is that it makes my computer run a bit slower. When I'm editing or working on graphics and am offline, I switch the Norton off and the perfomance seems to improve a bit.

    I stopped using Norton when I discovered the power that marketing has over commonsense.

    Maybe things have changed since I used Norton, but I recall that virus definition updates were published once per week - usually every Friday. I got a bit paranoid about this frequency - a week is a long time in Internet land. AVG publish updates every day.
