Hi guys,

Do you know any good and free firewall and antivirus software that I can download and reliably use?

WOw..... you're lazy. A google search turns them both up easily:

[a href=\"http://www.free-av.com/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.free-av.com/[/a]
[a href=\"http://www.grisoft.com/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.grisoft.com/[/a]

I don't think lazy is the correct term, he took the time type here and wait for a response when google would have responded immediately.

I know what you mean. The reason I want to ask other people is to get a recommendation.
Which one do you recommend?

I always suggest AVG as an anti-virus solution, and ZoneLabs' ZoneAlarm software as a firewall.

[a href=\"http://free.grisoft.com\" target=\"_blank\"]http://free.grisoft.com[/a] for the free version of AVG
Click [a href=\"http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/company/products/znalm/freeDownload2.jsp?dc=12bms&ctry=US&lang=en&lid=staticcomp_za\" target=\"_blank\"]here[/a] to begin the process of getting the free version of ZoneAlarm.

There are several other threads about recommendations for that stuff in the Misc board. I'd suggest doing a quick search.
