alternative software

hello all,
i'm gonna do a format - reinstall of Windows XP soon, but i dont like Norton software which i have been using, Norton Firewall, Norton Antivirus and Utilities.. what are better alternavtives to these? I have adsl so i need a decent firewall.
I need a better antivirus program that has updates of new virus definitions but im not sure which to use? :confused:

i prefer software that doesnt interegate itself so much into the XP and doesnt run in the background or anything annoying.

any recomendations?

avg has at times been proven to be better then the big ones, at times, not as good...always close.

it's smaller, less cumbersome on your pc...I don't see any reason at all to pay for av, with avg available.

tiny firewall is smaller then za, also less cumbersome, I had lots of probs with za, no probs with tiny.

tiny is harder to figure out, but much worth the effort

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
