What is internet security?


How must security is required to be fully protected? I currently have ZoneAlarm Pro so do I also need Norton Internet Security™ 2006? My free Norton version is expireing and I'm wondering if I need to renew it?

Dear Brian,

In order for your system PC to be fully protected you would need to have an anit-virus program installed, your firewall must be turn on To check to see if your firewall is turn on:

Click start, settings, control panel, and internet options, click security If zonealarm pro protects your PC from malicious intruders you do not also need Norton Internet security, because than you are going to have two programs doing the same thing

Make sure that you do update your security program wheather it be Norton or Zonealarm and make sure you have an anti-virus program as well.
