Hello,
I was wondering in your opinion which is a better Anti-Virus Program
Avast Home Edition or Zone Alarm.

I am Currently using Zone Alarm,but I just saw on cnet download where
Avast got 5 stars from the editor and 4.5 from User’s.

I need your opinion, I just switched to Broadband and need a good free
firewall.
Thanks.

Yo-

Suggest a combo of:

Comodo Firewall Pro

SpyBot with ‘teatimer’ turned on

ThreatFire from pctools

AVIRA Antivir PersonalEdition Classic

They are all free and all play nice with each other and all are the best in what they do-eh!!!

Avast is good …i had it for a while…but when it finds a viruis or trojan…it sounds a sirene…i got tired of that happening at the 2 am scan…so now i’ve gone to AVG and threatfire…
Anyone here will tell you sometimes it is best to change up what your running …from time to time …

Avast has recently released version 4.8 which now has an anti-spyware module added. You can read about it here:

I’ve been using it and haven’t had any problems, so far.
