I would like to say hello to everyone here. It was this forum that helped me finally ditch Norton AV and switch to NOD32, and I thank God I did when I read all the problems people are having with Norton on various sites around. Now to my question. I guess I am as security conscious as the average home computer user. On my home pc I have NOD32 installed and I use the WinXP built in firewall, that's it. Now I regularly visit the security forum at dslreports.com and there are people there running NAV's, trojan detectors, firewalls,and other security programs at the same time. I find this to be overkill. If you have a good firewall why do you need a trojan detector and vice versa? I mean if you are a terrorist or work for the FBI, ok but for the average person I think my setup is ok. I like to keep my computer "lean and mean", don't like allot of progs. running in the back-round, and WinXP firewall has passed every online scan that I have tryed, and off-course I trust NOD32 to catch viruses, trojans and worms. What is your opinion on this subject? If you do think I should install firewall which plays nice with NOD32? I don't like ZA, I do like blackice.Sorry for rambling on a little too much, my wife always says i talk too much.
