Enough protection for pc ??....right choice ??

  RKMonty 14:34 03 Sep 2005

I have installed Sygate Firewall, Spybot S & D, Spyware Blaster, Adaware and Avast Anti Virus 4.6....I think this is enough protection. Taken from all of your postings and advice.

So I can now safely get rid of Norton Internet security and have already got rid of Webroot Spy Sweeper....felt that these were slowing pc down a lot......and they cost money !!

Have I made the right choice ?? Comments welcomed...

I would add Microsoft AntiSpyware click here

With the addition of MS antispy you will be well protected.

Hi RK,

If you're on dialup recommend click here. A good extra is aSquared spyware killer from click here, it also gets rid of trojans. There's a lot of free stuff at click here and I wouldn't be without CCleaner which not only erases history traces but resolves issues and uninstalls programs. There's a malware removal forum at click here and Hijack This is available from click here. Regards

P.S. CCleaner's from click here

I have read in these forums of people having conflicts when running two real time scanning agents. i.e. Spyware Blaster and Microsoft AntiSpy. I think they both do similiar jobs. Maybe someone could comment on this?

I don't think Spyware Blaster is a real time scanning agent as I was always under the impression that it just blocked spyware from getting on to your PC in the first place by altering the registry kill-bit (whatever that is)!
