Yeah so I don't know where to put this, I tried on 4chan but they didn't answer (well they answered shit)
I'd like to delete this Norton crap and put something else, what do I put ?
I already have Sygate Personal Firewall, Spybot S&D and Spyware Blaster.
Grisoft's AVG Free.
Your quest is over, friend.
AVG - I hear many good things about it and default install it with friends who don't want to pay for antivirus protection
AVG free is probably your best bet. For even better speed (and only if you're an experienced user) disable on-access scans and use the context menu buttons to scan individual suspicious executables as they come in.
If you do this, beware that viruses can come packaged in image files, sound files, etc, that exploit buffer overflows in popular programs. If you run the latest versions of your programs (incl. Windows Update - Windows is made of many programs) you should be safe enough.

Install linux, problem solved.
that sounds a bit like "solve 1 problem, get 10 for free". If you're someone who doesn't like to tweak and adjust a lot of things (and most people are) then windows is the most convenient solution.
no viruses on linux. no one bothers to make one...
>>6 Gaming, I want to play games on my system, thats all.
>>10 if ur running ubuntu linux without any tweaking whatsoever (...jesus christ thats fucked up), i suggest you go back to windows.
I tried Windows again after being a GNU/Linux user for several years now, and man, it was seriously difficult to use. I'm used to GNOME, which takes a simplistic approach at its work, while in Windows there were all kinds of confusing menus and options everywhere, and figuring out where to go to do what I wanted was no easy task at all.
Um, are you sure it's the internet you're addicted to, and not, like, crack?

If you need to check just a few files, I may suggest https://www.virustotal.com/ , and also their shell extension.
