    I recently installed Zone alarm security suite and I am using NAV 2006 along with it.Now it seems that my computer has slowed down considerably and also my net connection(broadband).What is happening?

    please help me.

    NIS is better than NAV for sure but not sure if its better than ZA.
    ZA is the best firewall around. so i suggest that you keep ZA.

    You can use avast! Anti Virus from: www.avast.com. It is not only light but also Free of cost (You have to register though).

    Be sure to disable ZAs AV first.

    Now thats your choice. You can experiment with other AVs and settle with the one you feel is more better. I recommend avast! since I had no speed problem with avast! and ZA.

    kaspersky is the best but its a bit resource hungry and takes ages to scan. avast is good. way better than NAV. even nod32 is great

    ZA is best firewall available up2date but if u also need a gud Antivirus then i wud suggest u to leave ZA and opt for NIS 2006 coz single prog run both Antivirus & firewall too and is not less than ZA. & if u use ZA and some other Antivirus then resource consumption will b higher
