The guys on the motorcycle group list I'm on (who are by and large fairly
geeky) recommended Avast! and the standard Windows firewall when I got my
netbook.  Hasn't done me wrong yet.  The nice thing about Avast! is that
it's not a memory pig like Norton or whathaveyou... doesn't noticeably slow
the system down.
