firewall and AV with Security update??

Using WinXP home. Mozilla 1.7b.

Just received MS Security Update CD's in the mail.

Have been doing Win XP updates with MS, so guess most updates already on my machine.

Have AVG installed, and get automatic updates.

Using Kerio Personal Firewall, just received update on it.

Both of above seem to be working OK, no problems so far.

SO, my question is, how do Kerio and AVG compare with the firewall and AV from MS, better or worse?

Should I leave what I have, or uninstall them and install the MS programs?

Hi bently,

I think if Kerio and AVG is running without a problem in your system and you are satisfied with these 2 programs, there's no reason to replace it Happy

Just keep them up-to-date for extra protection.

Thanks Donna,

Both seem to be running very well.

I was just curious if the MS stuff was a better and to see what others experiences were.
