    Would the combination of Sygate 5.5 Pro Firewall and AVG 7 be sufficient Trojan protection?

    BTW, how is Norton Internet Security protection against trojans? How does it rank with the combination above?

    edit: Sygate Firewall not NOD32 AV

    yes
    also it wouldn't hurt to get Spybot - Search and Destroy! very good spyware/trojan remover

    personally, i'd say you should have a dedicated anti trojan program aswell, something like "The Cleaner"

    avg and nod32 are good as anti virus programs but they have limited anti trojan support
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    as i said, nod32 has limited anti trojan defense capability...

    it's not as good as a dedicated anti trojan
