What protection

  macroz 10:11 29 Sep 2004

I am a newbie, and I have got Noadware,SpywareBlaster,Spybot, Avast, and ZoneAlarm. is this good enough please?

yes it is, just make sure you keep these updated and visit the windows update site reuguarly.

Good enough, BUT......

Do you have a Firewall and Anti virus software??? And if you do, USE IT and update the antivirus software regularly (at least WEEKLY ). It is best in my opinion to pay for antivirus protection... I use Norton antivirus and have never been hurt by a virus.

Happy computing, and welcome to the home of a lot of people with so much knowledge it hurts!

hi there, macroz does have the above mentioned in the form of zonealarm firewall and avast antivirus.

Good coverage, shouldn't have any problems with that lot.

Don't forget to set the screen saver to 'avast anti virus', lets avast scan the PC while it's idle .
