What are the some of the best softwares that protect against hackers, stealth your ports, malicious programs, antivirus, antispyware, trojans, cookies, perhaps registry (or a separate program) and do all that plus a little more in realtime? I'm just looking for a descent program that does more good than harm. The price to me doesn't matter. Thanks. (:

Hi thatoneguyyep101 and welcome to BC.
Look HERE for a great list of anti-virus/anti-spyware programs. If you want a real time protection you can have an anti-spyware program such as Spywaretermantor with realtime enabled ot spybot's teatimer enabled. You should only have ONE anti-virus program and 1-3 anti-spyware programs installed. Also be sure to have a firewall and also remeber to update your softwares. Even with all that protection you are not 100% free against malware. You need to also be careful of what you do on the net. You can get some tips here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/75445/suggested-safe-practices/ and http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/123660/best-practices-internet-safety-for-2008/
Good luck :thumbsup:
