    GET BOTH IF YOU CAN. THEY ARE BOTH VITAL. AND KASPERSKY IS A GOOD BRAND OF SOFTWARE AND I WILL RECOMMEND IT. however, if you want to see for yourself, go to phazeddl.com and download all the latest packages and you can try each one of them for 15-30 days, so you know which one is good before you pay anything.

    A firewall is used mostly for online browsing security. Its function is to protect you from programs connecting between you and the internet or vice versa.

    You can get one of the best firewalls, Zonealarm, here: http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/free/1001_cnet_zdnet/zlsSetup_65_737_000_en.exe

    Here are some other programs for protection:

    Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.

    Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.

    Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.

    Works as a Spyware “Shield” to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.

    puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you’ll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren’t actually innocent at all.

    Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.

    Windows Updates – It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.

    Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.

    These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)

    you need two things for good security: antivirus and antispyware. they both are needed as if you use antivirus only, it won’t catch spyware in your machine such as adware or keyloggers. here’s a list of reviews and downloads of 74 most popular anti-spyware programs:
    good computer security program should have real-time protection to prevent malicious things from coming to your computer.
    and also remember, that antivirus/antispyware is as good as it’s last update! security programs MUST be updated often as new viruses and spyware are created daily :(
