    For Anti-Virus I had Avast but I didn't like it then went with AVG, which surprisingly didn't detect/remove a file that it should of been able to. Couldn't find anything else and using AntiVir PE Classic now which detect some items.

    I LOVED Comodo firewall but it was really annoying cause it kept conflicting with my asus wireless card so I went wiht Kiero which is now under Sunbelt.

    Spyware Blaster is always installed. I read some positive reviews and have A-Squared, Spycatcher express, and malware destroyer installed. I dunno what to make of them. I'm starting to find A-Squared a bit suspicious because on three machines it displayed a spying software on all three computers. Same EXACT results on computers with different internet habits. I dunno about that one.

    I use to have AVG anti-spyware, super antispyware, and spybot.

    What should I add/change?

    Personally, I like Kaspersky better than AVG for virus scanning.

    Linux

    Yeah, I do use Windows sometimes. I've never really used any security apps. I run AVG about once a year and Spybot/Ad-Aware every 6 months. I haven't had a virus or any spyware in over 5 years according to AVG and Spybot/Ad-Aware. It's really not hard to do - don't open executable email attachments, don't go to warez / porn sites, and if you don't know what something is, don't run it. And also, use Firefox. It cuts down on a ton of the spyware.

    nothing. Slows down computers.

    I'll install a spyware program every now and then to scan my computer, but I don't have anything ever.

    Thats why you need NOD32 thats really good, the look of it ain't that appealing but it doesn't slow down my system and finds and destroys anything thats in any way shape or form harmful.
