I am running vista and end up with a virus or some sort of corruption. I had Macfee suite which could not detect it. So I gave up and installed a clean copy of windows. I was wondering if anyone had any recomendations for protection. I use Zone alarm on another PC and like it. Should I just use what comes with windows or seek out other software. I don't mind paying as long as it is worth it, but prefer free.

Well if your willing to pay for an Antivirus... I find NOD32 to be the best out there.. It's not a memory hog and is simply amazing :flowers:.. so many features..
For firewalls COMODO firewall Pro. which is free.. is the best on the market right now for free firewalls... Only Con I give it is that i didn't install it fast enough :thumbsup:
I'm not too sure if COMODO is compatible with vista though, but its worth a try.

This is currently what I use on my computer for security: AVG for my anti-virus, Comodo for my firewall, Ad-Aware 2007 and Spybot for my anti-spyware, a-squared for my anti-trojan and SpywareGuard and SpywareBlaster for my real time spyware protection. All of these programs are free and can be found around the site. I have yet to have a problem that I cannot solve using these programs.

I use NOD 32 as already stated it is fast and light, couple this with AVG anti spy, Comodo and Opera web browser I have no problems.

The majority are compatable with Vista although I think Comodo are working on this
