    Can someone tell me the difference between the two products in the
    "Subject" and your opinions on the two of them? I can't tell from
    Norton's own websites the real advantage of Norton 360 over ISS 2009.
    Does 360 have a two-way firewall?

    I like your method of picking the best of what's out there - especially
    if it's free. Would you mind sharing with me what you currently
    consider the best? I'll probably go ahead and try them out.........

    One isn't very good & the other one is worse... :-(

    Norton (not to be confused with Symantec's own applications) products
    are usually not thought of well in the malware newsgroups.

    Once installed even their own purpose built uninstaller can't
    completely undo their presence, so a flatten & rebuild is called for
    by some when upgrading to much better antimalware protection.

    All Norton antimalware products have annual expiration dates!

    Using the "winver" command, exactly what OS are you supporting?

    With Vista, many would say that your system doesn't require any
    additional personal firewall help.

    I wouldn't detract from anything that FredW has passed to you other
    than add that a good NAT router will be a very worthwhile addition if
    you don't already have one. As far as antimalware applications go,
    I'm using about 95% of what Fred uses.

    The applications we use have very good reputations and have stood up
    to many challenges. ...and most of it is freeware.

    Best wishes to you.
