    I'm not experiencing any particullar problems running Firefox and Opera as my browsers and using the Kerio shareware firewall but this sounds interesting.

    How chancy would it be for an intermediate PCer like myself to install and use the beta version of this program.

      It is in Beta, but it's almost ready for Prime Time. You could still run Opera or Firefox, but their Antivirus and Antispyware programs are less demanding on your system resources. I do like the fact that they offer free Tech Support. I would suggest putting on this on a computer that is a back-up in case something goes wrong. I think Microsoft is moving in the right direction with this security software and this is what they needed to do a long time ago. I will probably put it on one of my computers.
