    Which one, symantec or McAfee, for virus checking / firewall? Understand computers enough to know to turn it on and use it, but want to learn more about computer security and the best way to protect my computer form virus/"phishing", etc. Have had my identity used to open accounts before and was not a good experience. Any and all info you can tell me or direct me too would be helpful, thanks.

    Take a seat facing the door.
    Zone Alarm and Norton Antivirus have never let me down.

    On my new laptop it came, rather I purchased, Norton 2005. It comes with spyware detection as well as virus scanner.
