I just purchased a new ThinkPad notebook and I have no idea on how to download an anti virus program w/o getting infected while doing so. I usually have someone else do this type of work for me, but he is not available until next week, and I want to use my new notebook now. Besides, I want to try and do this myself.

I was going to install Norton Internet Security Suite, but since decided against it. I still donít know what AV I should use, or firewall, and something to scan Outlook as well.

I am connected through a router but not sure it that is secure enough w/o an anti virus program already running.

Maybe I should wait until my computer guy can get to it. Or maybe this is not a complicated as Iím making it out to be.
Using XP Pro. Any Suggestions?

Hello,

If you have access to another computer you can download the product from that computer then transfer it to the think pad and install it.
