i was fed up with norton 2005 as it slowed down my PC.

i installed AVG anti virus.i want to know if this is as reliable as norton.

also norton maintained its own firewall, disabling the default windows firewall.

but with AVG, its using the windows firewall itself. is this as good as norton's????

Norton is not reliable but AVG is reliable and use windows firewall.

Zone alarm has more flexibility than windows firewall......u can totally control it,and watch which program r trying to access internet........and many other options........rest u can try and decide urself....

The antivirus is more reliable & light on system than norton.
Firewall---->Comodo firewall or Zone alarm.

You have done the right thing by removing Norton and replacing it with AVG. Regarding firewall, I suggest Comodo Free Firewall.

Norton is WORST.
You can use:
Antivirus: Avast, Kasperky, AVG
Firewall: Comodo or Windows. :)

why you wanna waste your money(considering you using a legal one) on Norton/McAfee(craps/bloatwares)
when you can get AVG for free...
i'm using AVG and i'm satisfied moreover i feel secure with AVG and Zonealarm firewall, both are free and a must to stay secure on the net...
