I read the latest reviews of firewalls and antivirus programs in PCMagazine...... all I have to say is - what a joke. I will never trust any of the so called "experts" from any of the magazines on their reviews of software and products. It's quite obvious that the "Big Boys" pay for their products to be rated high. The tests themselves are ridiculous, they aren't thorough and they don't even test the majority of the products out there giving us the consumers a fair comparison to make an educated choice. I have personally used and tested most AV and firewall programs available so I know first hand what is actually a good product.

My Rating:

Antivirus - AVG (the new 2004 Norton is terrible, 2003 is great).

Firewall - Sygate or Outpost.

Here is the link to the AV tests - AV Tests

What about Panda, NOD32, Kaspersky, F-Secure, AVG & Sophos just to name a few.

Here is a link to the firewall tests - Firewall  Tests

What about Outpost, Sonic, Kerio & Black Ice just to name a few.
