    I hope its gona protect my computer well.

    Wat is better norton antivirus 2006 or zone alarm.
    Dont go by the brand name people cause norton is really famous here in India.

    In many international forums, people hv suggested me zone alarm,thats why i asked.

    Plz reply.
    Personaly, i find za very good, with very good features, i m just worried about virus protection.

    Was using norton systemworks for 3 years, and now happy with zone alarm. The za firewall is awesome.

    If its AV, then its Norton, if its firewall it ZoneAlarm. So you have to use the combination of both. However, IMHO, there are better AV available then Norton.

    ZA internet security suite is "THE BEST",promptly warns if something is wrong while working or browsing.

    I'll never advise some1 to go 4 norton. :D
    Though I hvnt tried ZA Security suite but currently using its FREE Firewall and its quite good.
    Thats why I voted for Zone Alarm security suite.

    Use a combination of Zalarm and any free Anti virus software. But first load the Anti virus.

    this pure silly,how can you even compare a ca antivirus engine which even CA have upgraded to a great anti-virus like norton...
    Za's anti-virus has no comparison with norton 2006,norton is by far the best!

    norton makessimple into complex and doesnt know the answer for simple things.......but ZA is powerful....quiet....simple interface....ROCKS

    i have used norton....and seeing that every new virus is unique and every time a new one comes alive we HAVE to update ourselves...in that case no antivirus is PERFECT...
    if that is the case wht waste ur precious MEMORY onto a fat program...(NAV)

    ihave been using ZAfor quite a long time...and say the truth it is smooth and it now packs with whole loadsof stuff liike anti spyware...anti virus...firewall....anti site(something)

    ZAmy choice......

    NAV if found on ur saystem,.,.,,,please remove it without hesitation...
