    This is what I do. I use a layered protection scheme. I use little programs that do specific things. Not bulky programs that try to do everything.

    Avast!4 home AV, Sygate personal firewall, SpywareBlaster, RegistryProt 2.0 & ScripTrap. These little free programs stop virtually everything.

    And xp-AntiSpy, SpyBot S&D and Adaware6, (also all freeware) to 1st get rid of that M$ crap & the last two to check I'm free of spy/adware.

    Those are my basics. What are yours. B)

    Norton Internet Security and SystemWorks 2004 Professional suites. Combined with Spywareblaster and SpybotS&D for added comfort and ease of mind. For the layperson-average joe-PC user, this should be adequate, IMO.

    I'm behind a router that rejects unsolicited packets, and use NIS 2003.
    I use theBat! for e-mail, Gravity & NewsBinPro for newsgroups, IE6 for web and common sense (almost) all the time.
    I had a virus once, and I've had a malware toolbar once, due to my kids running an attachment & activex.
    Now we have XP and I'm the only one with permissions to make changes to system files or install software.
    I use Adaware and SpyBot S&D occaisionally, but they only ever clean out cookies.
