    VirusScanners & FireWalls

    I'll soon be formatting my pc (again! I hate winblow it up!) because it's getting very slow again etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. (etc=standard windows errors).

    Do you know a good firewall program and a good virusscanner? I want the best of the best for my little windows XP pc.

    Tnx Peoplez.
    Bleh.

    well i havent used Windows a a WHILE! but i used to use 98SE.... and i used to use what was called AVP but they changed it to AVX by Central Command as my AntiVirus, it was REALLY good and had alot of updates... dont know if its still on the same level as it was......

    but as far as a firewall, i loved Tiny Personal Firewall from tinysoftware.com ..... it was excelent and really flexible/customisable to my EXACT needs..... and youd really be surprised at how many skiddiots just look for random boxes to mess with.

    Software firewall I LOVE is Agnitum Outpost! I ditched ZoneAlarm and Tiny Personal Firewall since I discovered that one

    It is not the easiest to use for a newbie though...

    For a newbie, I would suggest ZoneAlarm.

    BTW like my new avatar?
