alternative to mcafee virus scan

  robert01 12:41 30 Sep 2007

I am going to cancel my subscription to Mcafee Virus Scan soon and I am thinking of going for Avast instead, I already have the free version of LavaSoft Ad Aware so will those two along with Windows Firewall ( soon getting new pc with vista ) be enough protection ?

Is there anything else ( preferably free ) I should get ?

Avast is a good virus program I use it along with Comodo Firewall Don't use Windows Firewall its not that good.

I also have Winaso and Cleaner For Registry Cleaning

For Spyware I have

Adware 2007
Spyware Blaster
Spyware Terminator
Super Antispyware Free Edition
AVG Antispyware

All Do me fine.

Well you can have as much spyware as you wish.

A bit of overkill on the spyware progs. This is a must have.
