Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the newest AVG version, as well as ZA.
- Avast! free antivirus: http://www.avast.com...avast-home.html
- Avira free antivirus: http://www.free-av.c...load/index.html
- free PC Tools Firewall Plus: http://www.pctools.com/firewall/
- free Comodo Internet Security (firewall + AV): http://www.personalf...all.comodo.com/
NOTE. During installation, Comodo will also allow you to install AV only, or firewall only, if you prefer to combine one Comodo product with some other product.
If you decide to install Avast, or Avira, make sure, Windows firewall is turned on
, or use PC Tools Firewall Plus.
If you decide to install Comodo, make sure, Windows firewall is turned off
.IMPORTANT! Make sure, you use only ONE antivirus, and ONE firewall.
On different Windows installations, I use all kind of combinations of the above programs, and all is well.
