I heard about a program a while ago on some radio show called Panda something? It does everyhing in one program? It's newer and supposed to be very good as far as anti-virus, spyware, etc, etc? I'm currenly using the free editions of AVG, Zone Alarm, Spybot S&D and Spyware Blaster.

It would be nice to just download ONE program that does everything to protect your computer. Does anything like that exist?

And which anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall programs are the best as far as offering the most protection?

Thankyou.

Nope, no one product has 100% detection of everything. Your best bet is to have a layered approach to security and use several different tools.

I'd also consider adding the following to what you have installed.

Adaware
A2 Free
Ewido

For what it is worth, I prefer to have specific applications for specific purposes, since these are created and maintained by experts in whatever the application does. Shotgun applications tend to be very strong in one area (usually the one they started with) and weaker in the other areas; in some cases, they only provide enough functionality to get by including that area in promoting their product.
Having specific applications also gives you flexibility in changing or upgrading in each area.
