OK. My new Windows 7 laptop arrives tomorrow. Is the general feeling that Avast for the AV program in preference to MSE. Plus spywareblaster. Is that it? Spybot recommended or necessary?? Mailwasher presently used and will continue with that.
SURVEYI agree with Fruit bat, although I an used to (free) Avira as anti virus. Choose youself from MSE (auto update etc), Avast or Avira, only install one nati vius. I have CCleaner as a cleaner on intenet stuff etc and as a mild registry cleaner; Superantispyware and Malawarebytes as malware scanners (prefer SAS)ans Spywareblaster as nalware blocker. I now use the W7 Firewall.
My ISP is good at the moment in blocking spam.I would uninstall McAfee, if necessary by using (free) Revo uninstaller, but the windows should do it plus a registry clean with CCleaner.
Hi buteman - yes have tried both Mcafee and Norton and haven't been particularly impressed by either as they seem to slow the computer down and both companies seem to a problem when it comes to renewing a subscription
