Based on what I've heard from web bloggers, Cox High Speed Internet security software seems to be pretty decent Especially since it's free! However, I did find that Cox is now selling McAffee products to their customers The basic functions of the two softwares are the same, but the McAffee software offers some extras such as:

Virus Update checks every 4 hours

Automatic Virus Signature Updates

Scheduled System Scans

Automatic Software Updates

Real Time Alerts regarding Virus Threats

Scanning integrated in Windows Explorer (Right Click scanning)

World Virus Map tracking

AVERT Virus Reporting

Hacker "Tracing"

HackerWatch.org Incident Reporting

Color Coded Alerts

Automatic Software Updates

Traffic Monitor

Active Application Reporting

Protects personal information from being transmitted to the internet

Settings to require your approval every time personal information is transmitted

Hard Drive cleaning tool for sensitive files

If any of these seem useful to you, you may want to consider purchasing the software.
