Hey folks... I have a licence for Symantec Internet Security 2012 to giveaway. Each licence can be used in up to three PCs.

To enter, just reply here with what you are currently using (and if not using anything explain why). Extra bonus entry if you post a picture of your current off line security setup.

I will draw a winner at random next Wednesday 21st September. Good luck!

I use Avast Antivirus. It is free so may not be as good as non-free Antivirus software.

My ESET Smart security suite is up for renewal (or replacement) on a couple of machines before the end of the year, and I have MS Security essentials running on a Win 7 machine.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials on the Windows VMs and nothing on the Mac because I'm yet to see evidence of it being necessary.

Microsoft Security Essentials, Microsoft Firewall, but my ADSL router also has a NAT Firewall too.
Before this was using Norton Internet Security with a licence purchased off Trademe, DOH! Only worked for 3 months until it zapped itself for being a fake - decided that paying for licences after that not a good idea if there was good free software available.
