So many links is so few posts. Like it.

I can vouch that AVG Free 7, AdAware and ZoneAlarm firewall work alongside each other without problems.

Definitely get Spybot, would recommend Spyware blaster to use with it.

enigma_lost will be well and truly lost when he/she comes back to all this :-)

As JonnyTub has said enigma_lost use only one anti virus and one firewall, if you install them all you'll really screw things up.

what is the idea of startup managers and temporary file cleaners?

  JaßîsFaß ˜ 19:31 28 Jan 2005

Temporary file cleaners remove all the unnecessary files that store up on your PC from surfing, most recently used file links etc. Helps keep your PC tidy from all the rubbish.

Start up managers can help you analyse all the things that start up when you first turn on and you can choose which you want / need and improve your start up times.

I'm sure others can give more detailed answers but both are very good items to have.
