I have installed AVG and Spyware Blaster on my new laptop.

Is there any other essential virus protection or security measures i need to take?

Hello,
There is a very useful page here which tells you of spyware removal and free anti-virus software.

We would reccommend that you only have one anti-virus, as two conflicting ones can cause you a lot of trouble. Your should also have at least two spyware or adware removal programs.

Scan your system with each of these programs at least once a month, to ensure that you do not have excessive amounts of spyware.

Hope this helps, :thumbsup:
Charles

I actually support Newcastle--but considering their recent form, I don't think we'll talk about that :thumbsup:

Make sure your firewall is always activated when connected to the internet, and that you have your browser's security settings high enough (especially if you use Internet Explorer).

Here is a good list from BC listing simple steps to keep your computer secure:
