    I am thinking of putting this on one of my clients computers running xp pro sp3. this version has a firewall built into it. I am wondering how the firewall works and since he has another computer using Vista firewall and they are networked will they be able to see each other.

    I normally do not like suites but he is insistent so I need some opinions here how the firewall component works, is it hard to configure and is it flaky. I plan to trial him first but i wanted opinions here first before i put it on.

    thanks
    robin

    there is a firewall thread discussion and you should better check there instead snce this is a antivirus section. As for the antivirus there is little to talk about just check the frequency of the Avira talk around here and you will know how good it is.

    I know how good it is but i wanted to know those who have the suite since it does have both, how they like it.

    I will post in the firewall section
