New Year, New Security Suite

Well , I've finally replaced the ZoneAlarm Internet Security suite on my machine at home. Last year I was caught out by an auto renewal payment I had forgotten about. I canceled that soon after, but was stuck with another year of ZoneAlarm. Then I switched my secondary machine to Norton Internet Security and was duly impressed. On Windows XP NIS runs virtually unnoticed. Its resource hogging ways of several years ago have been changed to run in idle time.

My main gripe with ZoneAlarm was that it continuously ignored autoupdate settings, and often I'd want to do something which required a lot of system resources to find that an update was running.
