    I use to use Norton's stuff, but found it to use too much a drain on CPU processing power(it really slows thing down)

    For firewall I prefer Sygate over all others for this same reason. It is included in Pandasoftware's AV package which I use too because of the low CPU overhead and the fact it finds many virus that norton does not.
    I use the platinum 7.0 version
    www.pandasoftware.com

    For defrag, Diskeeper 8.0 is the best period.
    If you get rid of the norton programs you will notice an increase in the speed of your system, thats for sure[:)]

    1. sygate personal firewall
    2. antivirus corporate edition (a lot more streamlined, less of a cpu and resource hog)
    3. just use the default windows one with buzzsaw(catches fragmentations before they happen and saves 'em.
