Hello Ron, I am using AVG antivirus and Sygate firewall. Its giving adequate protection with frequent updates and there are no conflicts at all. I am using both the free download versions and havent yet felt the need to upgrade to a premium version. I was adviced of another anti virus NOD32 which has won many awards. http://www.nod32.com/news/awards.htm There is a trial version if you would like to try.http://www.nod32.com/download/trial.htm Rajan On Thu, 22 Jul 2004 21:14:59 -0700, Mike <mikebike@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > > Hi Ron, > the XP firewall even the one is XP SP2 Beta is not very good. > it still allows Windows to phone home to Microsoft. > > I think the Trend one will give you more protection. > > I was talking to ZA yesterday as I had to reinstall XP Pro due to a conflict > with Norton AV during a download while running SP2. > At least that is MS story:<( > > The rep at ZA suggest I not get the last (latest) update as there were some > problems with it. > I have 5.0.590.015 on this computer and have had no problems with it and > Norton AV 2004 or H&B AntiVir which I just installed Tuesday in place of > NAV. > > ZA are going to be releasing an updated one shortly. > > Mike ~ one of the Moderators > It is a good day if I learned something new. > Editor MikesWhatsNews http://www.mwn.ca/ > > ******* Mike's REPLY SEPARATOR ********* > > On 7/22/2004 at 10:48 PM Ron Allen wrote: > > Hello Group, > > I have a decision to make in the near future, and would appreciate > hearing other's perspectives. > > I have Trend Micro Internet Security installed as my Anti-Virus > solution, and Zone Alarm Pro as my firewall. > > The most recent updates to Zone Alarm are incompatible with Trend > Micro AV, and will not install.
