    I've got this running on a friends' system now and after a week I've been informed she's quite pleased with it.

    Norton Internet Security trial version. I might install zone alarm when this one expires.

    I'm running the best combination there is for Windows XP.

    Firewall: Comodo Firewall Pro (FREE) + Netgear Firewall Router (Hardware)
    Anti-virus: NOD32
    Spyware: PCTools Spyware Doctor

    And throw in PCTools ThreatFire for backup scans and nothing has a chance to even think about getting through.

    Same here - Snitch is really nice. For my Mac (Mac person since 1986) I've never used any virus protection. I have at least one Mac online 24/7.

    But - I also have a PC with XP. It's on a direct connect to the internet with a static IP. Before XP I ran Windows 2000. I used Tiny Personal Firewall when I had 2000 on it but since I did the XP upgrade all I use is the built in firewall. That PC has been connected 24/7/365 for over 7 years now without a problem (other than replacing the power supply twice). I use the PC for some client work, as a 'home server', as a web server for a small personal web site and as an ftp server.

    I do keep a series of backups 'just in case', but as long as one is careful with emails (I run all my email through spamcop first) and is reasonably careful about web sites one visits (and using Firefox doesn't hurt), one shouldn't have a problem.

    I do recommend using GRC's 'Shields Up' routinely to verify all ports are closed other than ones you know 'should' be open (such as my having ftp and http ports open in my case). I use Shields Up to check my Macs and my PC.

    I use the Windows XP SP2 Firewall and Firefox with NoScript, Adblock Plus and Filterset.G. I also use Spybot's immunizations. I do not use anything else, unless my NAT router counts.

    I used to use an antivirus scanner and third party firewall, but I decided that what I have now is sufficient. Every few years, I scan my PC for viruses with free online virus scanners and it turns out to be virus free.

    OS: Windows Vista 32Bit
    Protection: Router Firewall + Windows Live One Care

    The package works very well together the system can run a virus scan and i can still play wow with 80+ FPS

    When i had NIS i had to stop the scan to carry on playing wow.

    They are still going great, they've incorperated HIPS protection into the Any-Virus scanning now, so anything that runs suspiciously will pop up like a trojan and ask you for permission.

    Similar to Spywareterminator, this stops anything being installed on your computer without your permission.
