I have a newly purchased computer on the way. For protection this time around I am not going with Norton Systemworks, or any of the other suites, choosing instead to buy a separate firewall, virus scanner, spyware deleter, and registry editor/cleaner. I already have the best in every category, Zonealarm for my firewall, Spyware Doctor for spyware, and "Registry Repair" for registry errors. What I cannot decide, is what antivirus to buy! Whereas all the reviews on these other products were pretty straightforward, and therefore enlightening, reviews for antivirus progs seem to be rather wishy washy, and indecisive. Any suggestions? (along with urls that I can check out personally, if possible)... Thanks. :cool:

The November edition of "Computer Shopper" magazine (see Pg 86) has an article naming the top 100 picks for technology items. Here's what they recommend:
Best Internet Security Software: PC-cillin Internet Security 2005. $49.95

I don't trust mags like Computer Shopper that are wholly paid for by advertising.
They'll recommend whichever product gives them the most money to advertise it...
Having tried a variety of products over the years (Norton, McAffee, AVG, PC-Cilin, Panda, and several others) I've settled down on Kaspersky.
