Get a temp cleaner such as CrapCleaner click here to remove temp files and remember to do a defrag occasionally.

Remember also to do a regular backup of files.

Exactly what he uses and free in this case, is updatable and no way inferior.

Forget ZoneAlarm and get Sygate personal firewall; much more user friendly.

Oh I forgot,Sygate is also free.

What's so user unfriendly about ZoneAlarm?

Very straightforward once properly configured.

As pointed out, Ad-Aware SE, SpywareBlaster, Search and Destroy 1.3 and AVG (anti-virus) are all free and all are very efficient providing you update on a regular basis.
