    Hi,

    I was just wondering which is better:
    AVG Professional
    Avast! Professional
    Or Zonealarm Internet Security suite 6.0?

    By the way does Avast or AVG have a firewall?
    If you choose AVG or Avast! then I will have to purchase a
    seperate firewall [Zonealarm pro] :ouch: doesn't matter :thumb:

    Thanks,

    Henry.

    Re: Which one of there are better anti-virus?

    Of the three mentioned and as far as anti-virus abilities go, Avast! Pro is what I would choose.

    AVG has a version that is a combo anti-virus and firewall. Avast! does not.

    Before spending your money, may I suggest spending a little time reading the anti-virus and firewall forums to see what is working (and not) for other folks. You may find yourself looking at many more programs than those mentioned here.

    If you`re only considering those three AV`s, then I`d go with Advast also.

    Don't forget the wonderful skins you can use with Avast. :cool: :D

    :D A very generous benefactor has just made it possible for me to use AVAST Pro. I will leave it to these comments and none more, in fear I may once again start a near riot.

    Thanks
