Will a software firewall prevent adware and spyware?
Posted on 2003-11-17
I'm considering recommending the 'Norton Internet Security' product to my customers who have broadband internet connections. It includes antivirus, personal firewall, anti-spam, pop-up blocker, etc., but I can't get a straight answer from Symantec as to whether it will prevent adware and spyware from getting on the user's system. I'm referring to the type of 'stuff' that utilities such as Ad-aware find and clean up.
Does anyone know for sure?
