wannabe1 and czarina.. should i uninstall all the norton (the way you told me for her computer) and get rid of it, and use the avast or avg for free until i can get them for good? would it be worth it you think? and my firewall is zonealarm--i guess windows too.. i also put ewido on my computer but, i'm assuming it's a trial.. i'd just like your 'professional' opinions as to what is best.. if i'm fine with what i've got, so be it..

also, i have spysweeper, spybot, and adaware.. ok/unnecessary?

thanks

thank you VERY much wannabe1.. YOU have been remarkable to work with and i truly appreciate all the time you devoted to this -what seemed to be a- lost cause situation.. i'm amazed at all you know and all the tricks you pulled when the computer plainly said no to your antics..

it's been fun

I'd keep Norton until the subscription expires and then have a good look at Ewido. As for firewalls, you should only run one at a time and the XP firewall is very adequate.

Keep the spyware/malware programs and use them...can't be too safe, just ask your friend!!!!!!

Norton and Ewido do totally different things. Norton is antivirus, this is a must. However there are better programs than norton, like AVG.

Ewido is antimalware.
