I am using the latest version from AVG (7).

No problems so far. click here and download the free version.

AVG is well recommended

If you have not installed any spywares - adawares etc, then I would suggest that you do. Here are a few of the recommended free downloads. They will all work together with no confliction problems. Adaware click here Spyware Blaster click here a2 click here SpyBot S&D click here

A good firewall ZoneAlarm click here

As mentioned, all are free downloads with good updates and all well recommended.

Can only agree with previous comments, log into Lavasoft and get latets Adaware SE Personal, Spyware Guard and Spyware Blaster, keep them up to date with their free downloads.

When i reeived my new pc one of the first things i did was install both avg and zone alarm free editions and then install mozilla firefox(also free) to replace internet explorer. I've been told that gives me a good combination and so far no problems and i feel safe.

I see the Zone Alarm firewall download is a 15 day trial. I guess if you want to keep it after that you have to pay for it right?
