    Hi

    is there any good deals on antivir atm other than the norm? and what firewall should I use intill the antivir one comes out?

    im a safe surfer so do i need hips or should i just use antispyware?

    thanks in advance

    when i last tried antivir i was using looknstop firewall and it worked ok. id stick to the firewall youre using now.

    as for needing HIPS, its up to you. its all about what u feel comfortable/secure with.

    i think u can do without it if youre a safe surfer. im certainly not one but i can stay malware free without one.

    since ur considering getting the antivir suite in teh future then i suggest u stick to a free firewall (ZA, comodo, winxp firewall etc) or just use ur router if it has a firewall.
