I have a couple of desktop towers right now (a homebuilt with 7 and an old dell with win2k). However I'm working on fixing another old dell tower I was planning to put win XP sp3 on and I was wondering, I run the current version of avast on my win 7 system and avast version 7 on the 2000 tower, both of which work great-before I go installing the latest avast version on XP-is there a specific version that works best for the XP OS?
Also the last version of Comodo firewall that works for 2000 always seemed to work fine for me (I tried outpost firewall 2009-but the 'Sheilds up' site kept telling me it was leaving ports open while the old Comodo firewall didn't), the current version of Comodo firewall I have on my windows 7 system is a 200 meg monster. Is all that really necessary or is it just bloatware? In other words does the old version of Comodo work just fine for regular web surfing, e-mail etc? I want good protection, but don't see the need for unecessary bloat.
