Default FIREWALLS ..XP's enough?and 2Xvirus-scans

Seen numerous free firewalls available. I have Win XP's turned
on for my DSL connection. Is it good enough ??
Also , can 2 virus programs run simult..(ha)....at the same time??
My Nortons subscription has expired , but of course it will still scan
for viruses it is aware of....then there are some good freebies to be had.

in actual fact XP is the most prone OS to hackers, try downloading Zone Alarm and see what you think

yes you can run 2 antivirus programs at once, it will make it slower though.
I use an antivirus prog called AntivirXP which is a really fast scanner

I think theres no use having too AVs simultaneous on one comp. They always conflict. Have a only one that is good.
Try the quickheal AV. Its best i ever used. Doesnt slow the computer down

Also zone alarm is the best.
