I was just about to replace Norton with PC-cillin when I found out it is
apparently not Firefox compatible.
Any ideas on other security suites that work well with Firefox - or not?
Zone Alarm seems to get a good press except for wireless.
I am a home user with:
a broadband connection
XP with SP2
Microsoft (ex Giant) AntiSpyware, Ad Aware & Spybot
I use Firefox except for pages that won't work with it
I use Outlook Express because it can automatically fetch my Hotmail mail.
I have a Belkin F5D7630 ADSL modem/wireless router wired to my desktop and
wireless to a laptop that has an old Belkin card that only supports WEP.
Don't chat, use messaging or play games.
Occasionally do a bit of file sharing.
Not worried about parental controls.
I don't really want to mess about with components from different companies
Automatic updates or reminders would be good
Don't mind paying a bit but would rather not have to pay for separate
licences for the desktop and laptop.
...and my wife uses the laptop. I will set up the security but she doesn't
want too many difficult permission requests to deal with week in, week out.
Any ideas gratefully received
Please reply to group.

Re: Security Suite to use with Firefox (previously posted in a less approriate NG)
Specifically on that part, may I plug my own site?
