Which is the best (most economical) that I can use for my new PC and my new lap top.

Use Vista's own firewall,it has inbound and outbound protection capibility.

Avg free Antivirus click here

Add a few other programs such as:

Spywareblaster
Spybot Search and Destroy
Adaware

All free and found at Filehippo.

Then add ccleaner click here or again found at Filehippo.
Ccleaner will tidy up the computers obsolete registry entries/temp files/cookies etc.

Using these weekly should be more than enough to secure your computers.

Obviously the best security,is common sense.

I agree with Skidzy

I use AVG, Adaware, Ccleaner.
Together with Vistas own firewall .
More than enough.

Thanks guys - appreciate the advice.

I was going to buy Norton or Mcafee - so with the above software loaded I don't need to and can save the sheckles?

there is no need to pay out for any security,its all availble for free.
Personally the all in one packages seem to be a bit of a resource hog.
The above advice is sound and may well be added to by other forum members.
What we have listed is plenty to secure your computer.
