    another thread for antiviruses...there are too many threads regarding best antiviruses. pls search for those threads. IMO, Avira Antivir, Avast! Home, Kasperesky, AVG and NOD32 are the best.
    Paid:- Kasperesky, NOD32
    rest are free.

    My choice is never on the list. When in windows, I use BitDefender + Zonealarm. I find that both are worth the money they cost.

    If you don't mind paying for the license, Zone Alarm is the best overall Firewall. There are others which are better, but in most cases, they are a pain to configure. Zone Alarm also comes with its own antivirus. Perhaps you should try that first before going in for a dedicated AV.

    Out of the antiviruses, my opinion is that BitDefender is the pick of the proprietry and Avast! is the pick of the freewares.

    Almost every security software product blocks ads in IE :) . I don't know specifically though, since I don't use IE.

    "Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite" is the Best.Atleast don't use Norton,AVG or Bitdefender (all 3 r useless).

    I have been using avg for a long time and it has never given a chance to complain. It's good and free. What else can you ask for?
