Any advice on XP Home antispyware?

  pcbobby 10:20 16 Dec 2005

I am trying to familiarise myself with XP Home.
As most members know, the system has a built in firewall and antivirus.
Personally, I do not fully know what is involved in the package.

I note however, that MajorGeek website have a MS antispyware download, reference1.0.701 Beta.
Do any members know if this software is already part of XP Home security package?
If not, would you advise installation?

XP does NOT have Anti Virus built in.

MS Anti Spyware is excellent. It is not uilt in so download it and install it.

Anti-virus AVG click here

Firewall ZoneAlarm click here and disable Windows Firewall.

Thank you VoG (TM) Re ZoneAlarm.
I currently have the freebie Sygate, shall I replace it with ZA?

No, if you are happy with Sygate, stick with it.
