With all the malware floating around on the NET, you should have at least
two anti-spyware applications, in addition to your firewall and anti-virus. Two very common such applications (both of which have free versions) are Ad-AwareSE
and Spybot Search and Destroy
. These two need to have their definitions updated, just like your AV, and will find almost all of the more common spyware and adware around.
Do NOT run two firewalls concurrently on your computer, as this will cause conflicts.
