Is it worth having Pest Patrol?

I have Norton Anti-virus and Macafee Firewall. Is it worth installing Pest Patrol or is the Anti Virus enough? Pest Patrol says it detects trojan horses, keyloggers, adware, spyware etc.

IMHO no.

Thank you VoG.

Just one further point. If I get the three programmes mentioned above do I have to run three separate scans from time to time? With the Pest Patrol programme I think only one scan would be required.

Yes 3 separate scans. They work and they are *free*. Keep them updated.

Spywareblaster is a little different - it stops the blighters getting in in the first place.
