Hi all,

I have Norton Antivirus on my computer, but it says it's going to expire on January 7th.  When I go to renew it, it wants me to purchase a new plan.  I know that there are some good and FREE anitvirus programs out there. I really need a firewall and e-mail scanning as well as full system scanning.  Do you have any suggestions??? Thanks Big smile

Zonelabs also has a great anti-virus program and everything.  So you don't need McAfee or even Norton as an anti virus.  You will need to pay for that however, as the firewall is the only thing that is free...

Hi,

I would suggest all not to use PIRATED anti-virus package as it does not cost much.

I am personally using McAfee Internet Suite and it costed me $69 and it comes with Anti-Virus, Firwall, Privacy Suite. I think they also offer discounted price for students and educational institutes.

Cheers,
Vijay

the version that my University offers isn't pirated b/c they have a contract with the company in order to ensure that student's computers don't get infected.  I do need to get a new virus program b/c I'll be graduating soon, so I'll definitely check out the McAfee Internet Suite.  Thanks for the info, Vijay.
