You're prolly all bored of me saying personal firewalls are pointless, so I wont.

However, it is absoltely vital u keep your dat files up to date for the AV software. But thats common sense right?

I use McAfee Virus Scan 4.5.1 , because I'm planning its deployment using ePolicy Orchestrator at work, so i'm very familiar with it.

It has FAR better heuristic scanning than NAV, no false-positives, and very little cpu overhead.

Apart from that, the rest comes down to how quickly they update their dats, and mcafee are dam good at it.

Protex X

NAV2002

ZA Pro

I run a worm scan every day

NAV picks up e-mail and internet malicious codes very well. I don't know whether firewalls help or not but I run it anyway. I think that cautious downloading and common sense are probably your besy defense.

No Firewall (Router) + NAV2002.

I switched to NAV as I had a few issues with McAfee + WinXP Beta, I would like to switch back as I prefer McAfee, so if anyone can elighten me as to whether it works OK on XP final that would be great.
