With AVG 7.5 going down, and 8.0 as a buy I am using
COMODO Firewall Pro (With Clam AV Installed)
Spyware Terminator (Real Time Protection Enabled)

and i also have
SUPERAntiSpyware and SpywareBlaster.

My question- Is there any freeware replacement for AVG 7.5 that i can download or will this be enough?

~Thanks

AVG 8.0 is still being offered as a free program.

If you decide you don't want to use AVG, you will need another antivirus program. The ones you mentioned are firewall and malware programs, not antivirus.

You can find a list of recommended free antivirus applications here:
