Hi, I am new to the world of internet security and privacy. I have been doing some reading about it both in books and on the internet. I thought I was secure but now I realize my security is poor. I use Norton's SystemWorks Pro which includes their AV software and Ghost for backups. I read some reviews on the net that Norton AV is not very good and that McAfee is much better as are others. I also use the free version of Zone Alarm. I have recently added SpyBot and the free version of Ad-aware. I am testing Pest Patrol and TDS. I want to have my system as secure as possible without spending a fortune. I am thinking about buying Pest Patrol and TDS as well as upgrading to Zone Alarm Pro. Since I am a novice in this area the programs need to provide maximum security and yet be easy to set up and use. Any help?
