Symantec and Yahoo have teamed up. Surprise, surprise! You can download
the security software for free (30 day trial) and if you like it, you can pay $49.99 for a 12 month subscription.
According to this write-up
, the software suite includes Norton anti-virus and personal firewall. Okay, now I have to be honest with you. Norton anti-virus is a fine product, but when I installed Norton's firewall product, I had nothing but trouble. This was a few years back, so I am sure the product has been improved. I don't use either product.
That being said, for Yahoo users, and home users, this is a good deal. Home users need both anti-virus and a personal firewall for each computer that connects to the Internet. And if Yahoo is offering support, then this is a really good deal.
