Do I have enough protection?

Currently on my laptop I have avast! Antivirus (free), CCleaner and Spybot S+D installed.

Avast! runs all the time and occasionally pops up saying its virus database has been updated. CCleaner is run about twice a month and Spybot ticks away in the background and gets a proper run once a month.

Is this enough?

Also I use Defraggler every so often, gained 3 Gb of space when I last used it!

You might not be too late to apply for the symantec beta trial click here Then you could get a years subscription from them.

Avast and Zone Alarm have served me well for the last few years without the merest hint of a virus or malware attack.

If you're sensible about were you surf you should be OK...

you sound a bit disappointed... or are you a fisherman? (and therefore used to not catching anything) ;o)

Vista Home Premium running Avast!, SuperAntiSpyware,
CCleaner & Malwarebytes weekly and the only problems that I ever seem to get are from Microsoft updates!!

:)) I used to go sea fishing, and did catch things (edible) I'm famous for being tight on security when it comes to PC protection though!
