Essential security programs?

  lucozade9 20:21 12 Sep 2006

Ive got my good pc connected to net now however i obviously want it running as fast as possible by stopping it getting clogged up with rubbish from net etc.

So far i have-
Norten internet security 2005 (all up to date on updates)
Spybot search and destroy (also all up to date)

Do i need anything else to ensure my pc runs as fast as possible and is free from crap you get on the net?

Cheers for help

Ad-aware se personal (click here) is a good tool to protect you in addition to those you have listed above. Also i would recomend spyware blaster (click here). This will be all you will need to block out most of the rubbish you will come across (in tandem with your norton and spybot search and destroy).

PS, nice choice choosing norton

A few more click here

Some people find Norton to be a resource hog - you could use AVG click here and ZA click here if you find the same.
