    My Norton Internet Security 2003 subscription expired recently, so I was wondering whether I should install NIS 2005 or Zone Alarm Security Suite 5.1. I'm assuming NIS is better with antivirus and such, but I only have 512mb of ram, so I'm worried that Norton might take up too much memory. Which security suite do you recommend?

    I dont like norton seemed to give me a lot of headaches, plus I know a few people that it missed some pretty nasty viruses and they had updated definitions. I would go with Mcafee for both the firewall and antivirus.

    I'd go with the new Norton personally. The 2005 version is very good and improved.

    Neither, Kerio is my fav. The free 2.1 version that is.
