If you are a limited user instead of an admin, you have a whole lot more protection than just about anything else you can do.
When I get more space, I'm going to have one machine running as a limited user for almost all my internet surfing.
How did I come to that conclusion..
I use their Anti-Hacker and Anti-Virus. They work as expected and never once have caused me, the user, any problems - with either the OS or the application software. Norton can't say that. The Anti-Hacker allows you to easily manage your firewall.
There are other good solutions. Black Ice worked well for me. If I ever feel the need to switch, I would use it again. Norton can't say that ;)
hi jack tests
anti virus checks
update yor system via windows up date to its latest version, generally when zonealarm is running resource consumption is rarely an issue
