    Is this a good reliable security program? I been using this with system works.

    I turn on all my settings to high alert etc.

    I was curious how reliable is this? Is there anything else i might want to look into?

    I wanted to stop also AIM pop ups that come up asking me to click this etc,etc and how i can purchase this and that from them.

    Any help or guides on how to lock down your computer on a clean install of XP PRO?
  2. I use this wonderful suite (Norton Systemworks and Internet Security. These programs does very well protecting me from internet attacks such as virues and hackings.

    I'm beginning to wonder about NIS 2003 because i'm still getting the odd pop-up or popunder rather. I've added those websites to the url list in the ad-blocker section, but it makes no difference.

    ming, I think the current version has a small bug in it with the "drag to trash can" method. I've noticed NIS not stopping all pop-ups too.

    As for my opinion on NIS, it is the best. I recently ordered version 2004 and I can't wait to see how they have improved it.
