    Hi,

    We're about to get DSL wireless for the home (upgrade from dial up) and our norton internet security software is out of date. I'm a college student and have a choice of discounted norton or macphee security suites, etc., but had also heard of trendmicro (spy trendmicro) and was told it was a little more user friendly than norton (less warnings and so on). Our set up will be a dsl modem with the desktop connected and a my laptop will use a wireless connection. Later on, it might be possible that both will be on wireless and will be connected to each other as a home network. I use my laptop at wifi hotspots on campus and coffee shops, so it needs to be useful for that. The internet (att) provider sets up a firewall and network key, but I think I might get Geek Squad/Circuit City to come out and secure it with their encryption--is that recommended? Anyway, with that situation, which software--norton/trendmicro--is best for us? My parents do some banking and a lot of email and I bank, shop, email, everything on my laptop, so I really need to know if one software has features over the other that would help with identity theft/spyware/etc. Thanks for the time, I really appreciate your input.

    Ashley
