A few programs I recommend to anybody looking for free software to use.
Avast! Anti-virus---Basic version is free and you get updates for 12-14 months after you register it, which is also free.
Ad Aware 2008 by Lavasoft--good anti-spyware,anti-ad ware program.
Spybot Search and destroy-- same as the ad aware but it finds stuff ad aware dont and vice versa.
Zone Alarm basic firewall--exactly what it says, its a basic firewall thats free.
I'm currently looking into a stand alone firewall box that is built, programed and maintained by the user. It looks really good and I will post a update or start a new thread about it when its done. I found out about it from a video on you tube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaeCxovsCVc You would have to do some research but I think it may be worth it.

I disagree that the Symantec software is slow or difficult to remove. I have used Norton products for 14 years now and have been very pleased with the speed and low load of the Norton products of the last couple of years. AVG, on the other hand, has become what Norton software used to be - fat and slow. It also has a recent history of debilitating false positives, corrupting users systems. I have tried AVG in the past and it has given me nothing but grief.
You can download a free 30-day trial of Norton Internet Security 2009 and try it for yourself.
