Im still learning and definitely need to know more about cpu security. I currently have Panda Internet Security, Windows Defender for realtime protection/firewall and have mbam (free version) as a av scanner my wireless is protected by wep security. My thoughts and questions on increasing my security are as follows:
A.)I went to a test site listed in this forum on a topic I can't remember the site and it said the only thing I failed was the ping/echo test so how do I fix this?
B.) Should I change to Zone Alarm or Comodo instead of Panda and windows defender for firewall?
C.) Should I invest in a external firewall and any suggestions on particular brand?
A.) My Linksys router is protected via wep so I am thinking I should change this to WPA is this a smart move?
3: Spyware Blaster and Spyware Guard for browser helper objects should I install these programs as well I saw them reccomended to help prevent ?
I dont want to go crazy and put two many programs on my cpu and have them start conflicting with each other but I also really want to increase my security any advise would be appreciated.
