As I finally get the chance to use my 6 month old HP Pavilion 9410 Vista laptop, I find myself about to uninstall the Symantec SystemWorks that came with a package of bloatware - and the notorious HP Total Care Advisor.
Is there firewall software with incoming and outgoing protection like Norton? Freeware, shareware, or something I can try out before buying a full version of? If there are more than one recommendable firewalls what are the pros and cons of each. I am a heavy Internet user doing research, always visitng new sites. I transfer photo and document files by email a lot. I also download games from reputable sites. I buy things on line. In short, I want to be as well protected as possible.
Thanks in advance for responding.
