McAfee's quite good too although not free, think it's about £30.

The two main ones are fine, Norton and McAfee, but cost.

Don't forget a firewall too.

Built-in XP firewall does the job.

Mmmm.... is it not more of a fire-blanket!

It's not very configurable and I'd always use OS independant security software.

Yes that is its weakness. If you want control then Zone Alarm is good.

i will second the grisoft AVG 6.0 anti virus.. it protects everything and is free plus its auto updates free.. so far has found a lot of virus's trying to attack pc i find that its not worth the money buying the well known versions as the people that generate virus's tend to now make them attack the antivirus program first..

Maria, Trojan attacks will just be reports from your Firewall saying that you are getting port scanned on 'known' trojan ports, just turn off the alerts on your firewall.
