I have a new laptop with one month mcaffee. This has just expired and wondered whether I should pay the £50 to renew for a year.
On my XP pc I have AVG, zone alarm spybot and A2.
Will all these run on vista? If so are they enough to protect with vista?

AVG will and so will Avast, which I use of the free ones.

Spybot and A2 works but there is currently no compliant zonealarm.

PS. Of the paid for ones many regard Kaspersky as the one in front at the moment. click here

Thanks for the quick and useful response. What would you suggest as a firewall instead of zonealarms?

I use the one that comes with Vista, I am waiting for ZoneAlarm to come up with theirs. The only free one I am aware of is the PC Tools one for 32 bit versions of Vista. click here I have not tried it myself.
