    I use Norton Internet Security 2007 and is about to expire in 60 days. If i can't find a free solution that works with vista x64 i might have to renew my copy of norton.

        Then a) why did you post in this thread and b) it seems you're only trying to stoke another mac vs windows debate. Have we not had enough of those here in the last few months?

        Jake, I don't use a firewall as I'm pretty happy being behind my DD-WRT powered router. I use AVG free AV, but I'm thinking of going back to kaspersky soon

          It's a chit chat thread. And there are anti virus- and security software solutions for the mac too. I just don't really feel the need for any.

            All I'm saying is this is a thread dedicated to windows users. By making statements about the mac (which is completely off topic) you're only going to entice people into arguing about mac security. You've been around here long enough to know what is a catalyst for an argument.

              I am here long enough to know that there are enough mature people who are capable of having a normal discussion in a thread like this. Sorry if you just assume differently.

                I've got AVG, spybot S&D, AdAware and Windows firewall, and a router. Difficult to say if this is sufficient or not. Used to use Norton, but it did seem a little resource heavy for my liking.

                I agree with one of the points that Floris made above actually, I do find the amount of resources that these programs gobble up annoying. Still, that's the price of security I guess. I'd sooner miss a bit of RAM than my bank details!

                  AVG Free, Router Firewall, XP Firewall

                  But I never keep any personal data on my PC that can be stolen and used. That's the only sure way to protect yourself! I also alway keep a HD backup using "Acronis" anyway, so even if my PC is infected. I can restore a choice of HD image back prior to that time of infection.

                  PS: Who in their right mind would be interested in hacking a Mac? Unless their very, very, very bored with nothing much else to do

                        As Floris stated, I don't use anti-virus when I'm booted into OSX, nor when I'm booted into Vista. Anti-virus software isn't at all necessary when using the least bit of common sense when browsing the internet.

                          Hardware firewall, XP default firewall and AntiVir.

                          My OS X is also secured by the hardware firewall and the OS X firewall.
                          That's the end of that!
