I've been using norton internet secur2003 for awhile and have had no problems with it...even when my cpu gets attacked with a trojan or somethin, most of the time I can trace that person and get all his info, including his ip add. Not that I know what to do wit that stuff....But recently my subscrip ran out so I got NortonIS04 off BT and it totally slowed down my system. So I got Sygate f/w5.5pro and Avg trial vers. How do these stack up to NIS03? does sygate prevent pop ups like NIS03? and does it alert me of attackers? does AVG have a live update like NAV?
and this might be a little off topic but should I block or allow these apps:
-NT kernel & system
-generic hosts services for win32 services.
i don't know what they do as I didnt encounter them with nis03.
