I've checked this site quite a bit in the past for useful malware removal guides and tools, but I am wondering now which ones I will need to download and run regularly. I just reformatted and reinstalled Windows Vista Home on my laptop, and I bought the full version of Kaspersky based on positive reviews (av-comparatives.org gave it an excellent rating). In addition to the full Kaspersky Internet Security program, I am curious as to what others would recommend I have on my computer just in case and what I should run regularly (scans, etc.). I understand that Kaspersky is fairly comprehensive, and that I shouldn't need to run so much anti-malware software at once, but I am looking for the best feasible security setup, due to the ever rising problem of rogues (they make me downright paranoid).
What I have:
Kaspersky Internet Security 2010
Adblock and Noscript extensions for Firefox
Windows Security Center is in the green (Firewall up, UAC on, etc.)
What I am considering:
Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware (free or full version?)
Spybot - Search & Destroy (incompatible with Kaspersky?)
Ad-Aware (free or full version?)
Any other suggestions/ recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
