Hi I would like to know which would probably be the best option for an all-in-one software package to purchase? I like the features of Norton System Works, but it makes my PC really slow. Can anyone recommend other alternatives? Thanks!

I also have sas, instaled but not running
once a week I turn the combination off

I really dont use much of any installed software on my computers. A hardware firewall stops almost all the traffic i don't want and i seldom download anything off the net anymore. I like using Avast AV on my wifes puter as she likes looking for video's. I do use Zone Alarm, but it's more for the safety factor than anything else. The only thing i ever got from Norton System works that was any good was Ghost. Nice program once you get used to running it.
