Best security software?
 
i formatted my computer, now i want some good anti-virus and firewall programs..that doesnt soak up all my resources! anyone got any ideas?

use a 100 dollar router, no point for firewall anyways, cuz even corporates got hacked, you think the ZA pro, black ice, etc etc can save you from being hacked??? No way! so might as well as cheezy hardware firewall which won't drain your resources....and for anti-virus, I'm using Norton, seems okay.....

use black ice cause its ok against small time hackers that might do damage to your machine the real hackers that can hack through black ice have no interest in your computer

As long as you got the configurations right, you won't be having any problems with file transfer.
I dun really think ppl will tell you they hack computers..............but I assure you if ppl can penetrate those corporate firewalls, our little firewall is nuthing to them, the best way to prevent being hacked is.............................DON'T EVER LOG ONTO THE INTERNET!!!!! A stand alone system is proven the most secure system, bwhahahahahahahaahahahaha

for jonny the best way not to get hacked is not to piss people on the boards hehehe *wave*

i still owe u one for that friends post*mumble*

but yeah an external router is the best from what i heard.
i'm using this free anti-virus program AVG 6 from www.grisoft.com

Or maybe lets put it this way.......one of my friend hacked into his professor's comp while he's in class learning cisco and pulled 200 tests out of his laptop without being noticed.......... and I'm talking about the cisco routers not the cheezy 100 dollar routers you can buy, so pffft....what can those routers do?

Jon@Bimmersport 02-08-2003 03:30 AM

hahhaha, instead of saying stand alone fuel management system..i can go "i got a stand alone firewall system, and a twin shot antivirus system" hahaha..oh man, too much fast and the furious..lol

thanks guys, im prob gonna go pick up the router soon.

Why are you worried about someone hacking into your computer? Afraid someone is gonna see all of the beastiality and gay porn you have?

Its happened before, only cause my friend tried to do it and failed, then someone else somehow did it. But his was a long time ago.......... I thought it was funny. They kept putting pop ups that were saying "hello" and stuff.
