    Hi everyone,

    I thought it would be interesting to know what security people use (and how successful or not!). I'm assuming that giving this info doesn't put security at risk - perhaps someone could say if it does!

    I use
    1) Firewall inbuilt in router
    2) Sygate firewall is on computer in case of router failure but I turn it off when logged on.
    3) Microsoft firewall turned off
    4) Avast antivirus
    5) Spywareblaster
    6)Prevx Intrusion prevention
    7) Ewido - not full version which has expired & you have to pay for.

    Everything seems fine at the moment. (I recently changed set up as I was getting a few viruses and trojans.)

    ESET, with a built in router firewall (Draytek 2100 I think)

    Only when it rains.

    The serious answer is tha that my router has an inbuilt firewall, which is on, as is the MAC filtering. The PC has Comodo firewall and AVG on it. T

    The mac has its inbuilt firewall on and all sharing that is not needed turned off.
