Yea, I have Norton and it protects me from everything imaginable. The only way I could get a Virus is if I downloaded a virus file and installed it manually on my desktop or I turned off my Firewall.. What do you guys have?

Favorite Firewall Thread?? Roll Eyes

Well, anyways, I have none..
Firefox, a Virus scanner (AVG), plus a router that isn't shitty works great, you know.. Smiley

Also, Linux works.

I'm running Linux, so my firewall is iptables.
But for those times I use Windows, I'm a
Zone Alarm fan.

My favorite windows firewall?  A Pentium Pro with 24MB of RAM & two NICs, running OpenBSD...  I think that qualifies as "other"

Yep, that certainly qualifies as other.
I've heard openBSD has an excellent record for security. In hard
Internet times such as this, I must give them credit for
keeping their systems hardened.

I use Zone Alarm Full

I've tried a number of anti-virus and firewall combinations over the years and my experience of the Norton Suite was that it seemd a bit resource heavy and seemed to interfere with several of my regular apps/games (possibly I wasn't configuring it properly) so I ditched it for Zone Alarm Free with AVG.

Now I use the full version combined ZoneAlarm Firewall and Antivirus app and I've had no problems with my PC since. I also use SpyBot to weed out those annoying spyware files/apps that can be downloaded from time to time, and now my PC is clean as a whistle!  Wink
