You can always use another free A/virus program if you wish to, and combine it with any other F/wall program (XP built-in is not great, but better than nothing). I find that avast! has dropped just a bit lately and now I only use Microsoft MSE free A/virus (others will offer other advice also)
I have Zonealarm (free) and Avast (free) but that's what let the virus in to begin with
- Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium Toshiba Laptop - Malwarebytes - SUPERAntiSpyware - Microsoft Security Essentials - HiJack This -
- SpeedFan - Cannon Printer - ATF Cleaner - ORCA and Proud user of Internet Explorer Browser - Secunia PSI - And I Use GOOGLE-

What does the future hold for Ad-Aware?
Ad-Aware...have gone into a downhill spiral over the past five years and recently sold the company to Solaria... Majorgeeks stopped listing Ad-Aware as a “pick” some years ago as we watched the quality of the company slip over the years...it can’t stand up to the new generation of anti-spyware applications...

SUPERAntiSpyware Free does not provide real-time protection or scheduled scanning so there is no need for it to run at startup. A purchased upgrade to the "Professional" version is required before those options can be activated. SUPERAntiSpyware Pro offers a 15-day fully functional free trial where you can try all features unrestricted. See SUPERAntiSpyware Free vs Pro Comparison Features. If you're not going to purchase the Pro version, then I recommend to disable SUPERAntiSpyware Free's startup and use the program as a separate stand-alone on-demand scanner.
So if I drop SSD, would I "run" ZA, Avast and SuperAntiSpyware all at once? That's my main area of confusion,
Same thing with Malwarebytes. There is no need to run the free version at startup. The real-time protection features are only available if you purchase the Pro version. If you're not going to purchase the Pro version, then it too is better used as a separate stand-alone on-demand scanner.
I do have the free version of Malwarebytes I didn't install yet, since Im still making a mess, but then I'd still have the same question, would that be a sometimes program or an all the time one?

Pick any Antivirus that You prefer , Pick a F/wall that You prefer , Add a Malware scanner (Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware are my 2) , Add Spywareblaster and that is a decent list -
