    Trend Micro makes a very good internet security program that includes anti-virus, anti-spyware, and a personal firewall. Norton and McAfee work very well but are memory hogs and slow your computer down. I’ve also had pretty good success with Windows Live OneCare.

    Hope this gives you some options.

    To maintain proper security, you need to do a number of things.

    You need to prevent Intruders from getting access to your computer. For this you need some sort of firewall which preferably should be hardware based such as a router.

    You need to prevent viruses, trojan horses and worms and get rid of any that might have made it onto your system.

    You also need to prevent and remove spyware and adware.

    Spam elimination and parental controls are also important.

    Phishing prevention is also important.

    The best and easiest way to accomplish this is to use an internet security suite. Bitdefender and Norton Security 2008 are among the best.
