Should not be a problem once you don't have all running at the same time.

But don't see a Antivirus software installed??

Isn't Asquared and anti-virus program?

A Squared is a very good Anti Malware program, NOT an anti virus program.

Personally I think you have too many anti spyware products. I would get rid of at least two of them.
I am on-line every day and all hours, I have Ad-Aware, AVG, Anti-spyware Bot, RegClean, Tune-up Utils 2006 and Diskeeper. I can honestly say I have never had any security problems in years.

Added to the above, all one needs is a little bit of common sense - like not opening 'unknown' emails or attachments, and not answering the many scams that are always doing the rounds.

I have never used Asquared, but I am glad to have learned something new, to me at least, today, I was under the impression it was an anti-virus program.

So, mark3986, I would strongly advise you to get something like AVG (free), definitely needed.

Me again - I forgot one - I also have Sunbelt Pers Firewall (formerly Kerio), the paid for version.

I have been away most of the day - but to answer you last question, you already have a reasonable collection, all you really need in addition is one good Anti-virus like AVG Free from click here
Never use more then one anti-virus, and as I said earlier you don't need so many anti-spyware.
