I have windows XP. Is the security provided by Microsoft sufficient or do you think I should add extra? I was provided with MacAfee free for 3 months and this expires this month. Do you think I should continue with it.
Get AVG anti virus (free) click here Windows defender (free)click here and any free firewall. You could also add spybot as a reserve click here (also free)
These will be more than enough + common sense to protect you. There is no point in going overboard with spyware 'protection' and there is no earthly reason for a home user to pay for any of this protection.
try google pack. it comes with a 6 month licence for norton 2005 and adaware and firefox lat time i checked which will all go a long way to protecting your pc. a firewall is also a must as the windows firewall is well about as usless as a choclate fireguard as it only monitors incoming traffic!
