    need advice on a security suite for a laptop with wi-fi, currently Trendmicro.

    Give Kapersky's Internet Security suite a shot...if you want an all in one.

    If you want to break things into individual components...
    For antivirus...I prefer either BitDefender, Kapersky, or NOD32 (favorite)

    On my laptop I use the Windows firewall built into WinXP..when I travel...I'm only concerned about keeping outside from coming in.

    But if you want a bidirectional firewall...Kerio or Comodo are two good ones. Not a fan of ZoneAlarm...known for causing quite a few issues.

    I agree with YOSC, Kaspersky definitely.
