    hey everyone!

    i have been searching for a couple of hours on the forums now, looking for some basic security applications for a pc with only 250MB...but i dont seem to be able to figure some advices out...so i beg for some simple advices here, please!!:blink:

    give me time, i wont be a newbie for too long, promise:D

    also, i havent decided on an antivir software, a friend suggested kaspersky or NOD32...i´d rather use free software, but it should be light...else i guess id have to buy some...

    AVG and Antivir are both free and very light antivirus. If you have a router you should use that for a firewall.
