|am in the process of trialling the major Internet Security Suites.|
free 2 week or 1 month trials.....
first up, i wouldn't touch Norton.....sorry, just my opinion after years of hearing how it sucks yer system resources.
tried ZoneAlarm ISS 2007.....brilliant ! i have always liked ZoneAlarm.
tried AVG.....the effing Firewall conked out after 4 days and i couldn't get it going again ggrrrrrr. so i ditched that.
then tried McAfee ISS.... one review website gave it THE Gold Medal ahead of Norton ISS 2007, ZoneAlarm, Kaspersky. 2 other websites gave it THE Silver Medal. ya kidding !!!! ggrrrr my free trial of McAfee ISS had its latest virus definitions as at 1999 !! ggrrrr so i went to update the virus defs but i had to REGISTER the FREE trial version. i tried to do so at least 4 times and each time pop-up window just sat there BLANK with nothing happening. one time i left the update/register window sitting there for 3 hours and nothing happened. so the latest virus defs were 1999 !! ya kidding !! ggrrr so i kicked McAfee right off my HDD
THEN i tried the latest Kaspersky ISS 6. AT LAST !! something worthwhile ! am currently running it now and am impressed after 4 days. easssssy setup, it sits quietly in the background, and is renowned for having THE best AntiVirus detection around.
soooo for me right now, its a toss of the coin between ZoneAlarm ISS and Kaspersky ISS. Kas is a bit dearer than ZA.
