Hi. This is my System Spec :- Windows XP Service Pack 2 1.2 Ghz AMD Athlon XP Thoroughbred Motherboard - ECS K7S5A SiS Chipset 1024 Mbytes Kingston Value RAM GeForce 4 MX440 128 Mbyte Graphics Accelerator 80 GIG Hard Drive Soundblaster Audigy 5.1 Sound Card I have my internet through a company called NTL (for those who don't know - it's a cable company in england, TV, Phone, Broadband Etc.) and I have their Internet Security Suite called NTL Netguard. It seems OK but now and again it detects certain viruses that it cannot disinfect and seems not to be able to delete (which it has to do on the next restart) this is the internet address for more info if you're interested http://www.ntlworld.com/microsites/netguard/ It seems like a good program as I said, but I want a better one. I want something that is cheap, or free , has good updates and features, is easy to use and is that sort of software that you can "install and forget". Asking a lot, I know, but reading some of your threads on here I am guessing that you guys mostly know what you are talking about I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what good programs are out there. I have read good things about AVG and NOD32 but i downloaded a copy of AVG, installed and promptly had my entire computer crash down in flames. The start bar completely dissapeared and after being on for five minutes or so a message appeared stating that windows had encountered some sort of conflict and it gave me a 60 second countdown before automatically shutting down my PC. After formatting and re-installing everything I finally am able to get some advice. Anyway, if possible I am after a full Suite that does Virus Protection and Firewall and anything else good. I know I need a virus detector and firewall but the rest of the stuff you can get confuses me a bit, I know you need some of it but I am not really Sure what most of it is for. I play games online, do a bit of downloading and surf a bit. I also do online banking and manage some accounts for other stuff online, to give you an idea what sort of stuff I need it for I am sick of going online and getting Netguard shouting that it has detected a virus but can't do anything about it, it's really annoying.If it just had a better way of dealing with viruses I wouldn't change it 'cause it has free updates and is easy to use. Sorry for the length of the thread but if I give you as much info as possible then you might not have to keep asking me for more info. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
