    If you have windows xp and SP2 then i would try useing that because the impovments that
    microsoft have made with this new service pack to the firewall are quite good and it means that you
    dont have to install anymore software.
    hope that helps

    I just purchased McAfee's entire product line for about $175.00.  However, I have 30 days for a refund, and am beginning to think that some of this stuff that is free off the internet (e.g. Adaware) is superior.

    Bottom line:   For each below, what do you recommend?
              anti-spyware   (I'm getting the impression that it's good to have 2-3 programs, since one doesn't seem to pick all of them up.)
              privacy protection

              any others?

    Do Zonealarm Internet Security or EZ Armor (both antivirus and firewall) both are CA or Checkpoint products. The firewall takes care of the anti-spam. EZ Pestpatrol is the best for anti-spyware - they maintain a database of pests like you would for virus's. And privacy protection? Back to answer #1
