Firewall of course! You don't necessary need a antivirus program if you have a good firewall program.
Yes, and everything you download you are sure has no virus/trojan/etc.??

Most ADSL/Cable modems have a firewall build-in these days, so if you pick only one, pick a virus scanner!

I use NOD32, I used to use norton but it failed me >_<
AVG is good too, and eats less memory.
If I had to choose I'll choose antivirus. I get more viruses from my friend's thumb drives than off the internet (the internet's pretty safe if you're careful enough)


I've thought about trying out NOD32, just haven't yet, still been using AVG which has been good.
I like that, with AVG, I can right-click dled rar's and zip's and have AVG scan them, something I always do.

Good bit torrent trackers don't have virus's or trojan's in their files and most of them has a option to comment the torrent so it's pretty easy to check that it's ok.

I used to like norton too, but it failed me once, made me had to reinstall windows (well, i could probably just clean the viruses using safe mode but there will be traces of them left) so I never use it again >_<

@L-san
I think AVG are just as good as NOD32 (I use AVG for my work PC and it works fine).

Lol my question sparked quite abit of a response :ROFL

I'll personally go for firewall myself as long as you play it safe and don't download suspicious or unknown file.

In my experience Norton just sucks and can't do the job it's hired for.
I'm using Avast professional and Sygate firewall. I have no problems whatsoever.

I think i'll bring this thread back up once again...  :P

For me it's always norton, i knew it's heavy but it's always protecting me with good.
and norton 2009 is the most amazing for me.
Low memory consumption, quick install.

What i'm gonna ask is what's the difference between Norton 360 and Antivirus ???

I don't use one.  I just use common sense.
Use a decent browser (anything but IE).
Don't open email attachments (but be careful if you do open any).
If I download software that's not from a trusted site I'll use an online scan.  I used to use housecall but since the version of java was updated it won't work for me any more so I found BitDefender do an online scan so I use that one now.

In 9 years I've had 3 viruses, 1 was when I'd only had my pc 1 week (and it was a rubbish virus that didn't do anything) and the other 2 from a Japanese p2p prog.  Oh, and I got a dialler from Robb's Celebs (that site was full of them) but I'm on broadband not connected to a phone line so that was another fail.

I'd link to the actual report but you would have to register to see it. Though Symantec seems a little defensive about the results.

I'm surprised this has not been mentioned yet on this thread. But keep your software updated as well. It might be obvious to some but it should be mentioned anyways. Especially with 3rd party apps like Flash, Firefox, Adobe PDF reader and the like. The OS itself is becoming a harder target these days and black hats are increasingly picking holes in popular 3rd party apps rather than trying to take down the whole OS.

I think ZA is overrated. Taking up too much memory nowadays.

I personally go for AVG for antivirus and Outpost for firewall.

Btw, if you can choose only 1, which would you guys go for? firewall or antivirus?

AVG Anti-Virus is free.
ZoneAlarm Firewall is free.
Windows Firewall is free and built-in to any modern version of Windows.

If I had to turn one off or the other, I'd go without the firewall - but I can't see why I'd bother going into the Windows security settings to turn it off, by default it protects just fine.
