Thanks m8
Iam a bit of a noob on the whole subject of gaming and pc,(have a lot of reading up to do) so any input is appreciated
It's down the personal choice, I always use Norton but you'll get many people saying it's crap, the same applies to just about any other program. MS Security Essentials would be a good place to start though and if you don't like it try something else.

I suggest ESET Smart Security. Imo it's cheaper than some others and not slowes down the PC. I don't know MS Security Essentials so i can't say a thing.

Hope you setup a nice system ;)
agree with Ömer ESET Smart Securety is the best you can get it do not interfer with games, use it for years now and never had any problem with it
what i can not say from Norton the last working pice of software they released was the norton commander back in the good ol dos days
these MS securety essentials is just a alibi scanner its only there so you can say i have a scanner but preventing
for anything you better get some real scanner like ESET

Avast, free for home use, and ive had no problems with it in the past several years ive been using it.

I dont trust any microsoft stuff.

As for firewall, i used zonealarm for a bit, but have no need for it - i find firewalls cause lag.
