Suite applications like Norton and Mcaffee tend to be resource intensive. By trying to be a one stop solution they end up being a jack of all trades and master of none. We don't recommend Norton or Mcaffee products for this very reason. What we do like is to recommend separate apps that do their jobs very well.
Free Anti Virus:
not free AV:
Zone Alarm (free edition)
commodo firewall (free/open source)
AVG Antispyware (formerly Ewido)
spysweeper by Webroot
In-control by Sunbelt Software
This isn't an all inclusive list here. You can see additional info here: http://www.geekstogo...ftware-t38.html

Are there any programs out there with a firewall + antivirus + anti spyware, or at least firewall + anti virus, besides McAfee? (i don't really like it.) I'd like to know of some that are in the same program, not seperate. Thanks.
If you are looking for internet security suit i suggest Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0, it has personal firewall, protection from spam and phishing, protection from viruses, trojans and worms, spyware, adware and others.
More information can be found at the following link: http://www.kaspersky.com/kis6
Be aware that internet security suits need a lot of resources and it can slow your computer.
There are other internet suits, but you may also consider installing only good antivirus product and combine it with good firewall and antispyware programs.
NOD32 Antivirus Software has a quite good protection and its one of the best payed for antivirus programs, you can make good combination with free firewall program like Comodo Free Firewall and Comodo BOClean - Atimalware and some good antispyware solution like: AVG Antispyware, Trojan Hunter, a-squared Free etc.
See this link for more information: http://spywarewarrio...eatures.htm#rec
If you want to go with free product then i suggest one of these antivirus programs:
- Antivir PersonalEdition Classic
- avast! 4 Home Edition
These two free antivirus programs are excellent, and with good combination of firewall and antyspyware program will keep the computer safer.
