I'd use AVG and Zone Alarm, they're free! I had Norton back in 94 and said never again for me. Good luck

I don't have experience of either Norton or Bullguard, but if you have decided on one of those two and don't want any of SG Atlantis® suggestions then all I can tell you is that from what I have read many, many times on this forum is that Norton is somewhat of a system hog, so you may be better off using Bullguard.

Good luck choosing. There are many! A forum search could help you decide.

Don't know anything at all about Bullguard. Actually I've never heard of it so thats probably not a good sign. Norton is ok, I used to use it but moved away from it and onto the free ones because I started having trouble with the Norton. It has been mentioned many times that Norton is a system hog causing the computer to run slower. I must say that personally I never noticed it but know that others have.

If you haven't already bought Norton I would suggest exactly what SG Atlantis® has suggested. And of course its free. I use AVG anti virus, zone alarm firewall and have adaware and counterspy. You do pay for counterspy if you use it though its the only one that isn't free.
