    I am looking for the best Internet security soloution that wont slow your computer down. It's for my Nan's laptop and I will be downloading the gold release of windows 7 to replace the sluggish Vista!

    She has 1.73 dual core, 1GB of RAM and a 120GB hard drive. Just like my laptop but I only have 1.46ghz. I know that Norton is a system hog! It grinds your system away!

    OK! on win7 use AVAST home and COMODO firewall. This is the best and lightest combination. I tested Kaspersky IS, AVG IS, Avira IS and my ports where not hidden on internet, so I used comodo and no problem regarding my ports. Avast has same results like other antiviruses. Once use it and you will know what I am talking about.

    The only foolproof Internet Security solution:

    unplug it.

    btw, new 2009 norton is no longer a resource hog. They finally rewrote it. To bad it took them this long so they lost so many customers.

    lol kaspersky.... kaspersky uses up all of your ram gradually so f**k them. I use Norton Internet Security 2010 (beta for now) along with spybot: search & destroy.

    Do you try Bitdefender 2010?
    It's release to final version.

    Attack the problem at its source. Run Firefox instead of Internet Explorer and keep Firefox updated. Install Adblock Plus and subscribe to the EasyList filter. Firefox with Adblock Plus will speed up browsing in addition to adding security by preventing most Flash based exploits. You should also never run Adobe Acrobat Reader for PDF files but use the free Foxit Reader instead.

    Contrary to general opinion, informed Windows users rarely have problems with malware
