I'm thinking of getting away from Norton's AV mainly because of the product activation & all the ill news surrounding it recently. I'm thinking about buying F-Secure's 2004 AV app. The installation instruction s for F-Secure's 2004 AV app say to uninstall any 3rd party Firewall software. I use Sygate's PersonaL Firewall Pro & really like it. Now my main question is, can I reinstall the Sygate Firewall? The .pdf document from F-secure is silent on this point. F-secure also sells a firewall product. What really concerns me is the reference to "3rd party firewall software". Is this installation requirement pushing me toward using only F-secure's Firewall? I'd prefer to make my own decisions about which products to buy & not be "pushed" in to buying only one company's products because they have perhaps designed them to only work with each other & no outside apps. Thanks for your kind help & prompt reply.
