I'm a computer consultant

and I've used Norton AV for myself and my customers for years. Unfortunately, they seem to be "falling down on the job", lately. I've had several things get by Nortotn, even though all systems are using "Automatic Update feature". There's so much crap out there that I've had to go to multiple layers of defense...So in addition to Norton (which is still a good product), I do "online" (free) scans from a couple vendors, and even though all machines are "behind" a firewall/proxy (WinProxy), I've also added Sygate Personal Firewall (also free) to all machines (WARNING: this can be challenging if you're not too technical, as you have to know what to allow and not allow access to networks). Its a pisser that you have to go through all this, but its the only way I've been able to control the massive quantities of "stuff" that's out there.

Time is running out...Let's roll.
Let's roll for freedom, let's roll for love.
We're going after satan, on the wings of a dove.
Let's roll for freedom, let's roll for truth.
