  • it comes highly recommended by computer gurus. Try joining some of the Computer Moms groups and ask the same question to those who know their stuff. I listened when they told me about it. I'm very impressed with it.

  • I've never heard of it. I use Norton 360 for my internet protection. Remember you get what you pay for. But the word "Micro" implys small so Ide be wondering how well it can protect my PC. Also no matter what program and firewall you use, your only as safe as your last update.

  • It is awesome. They have a free virus/spyware scan on their website. It was recommended to me by a guy I know who works in computers. They also have regular antivirus software as well. It is updated regularly (even more regularly that the Norton on my brother's computer).

  • I use Kapersky. I haven't had any major probs. Had Norton before and it was horrible. Never used Trend Micro. A friend says AVG is really good, though.
