My system now:

Realtime:

Nod32
Comodo FW
Winpatrol
Cyberhawk
Trojan Hunter

I use Firefox, router firewall, spyware blaster, MVPS hosts file

On-demand:

Super Antispyware, AVG AS, Spyware terminator.

First, do I need all the realtime stuff I have running?

Now I have won the following:

Norton Confidential
SuperADBlocker
Greenborder Pro

Where do these fit in my system? Replace something, add to it, do not use (and use on my other computers)

Thanks

Sounds to me that you have everything covered with all of those programs. But in my opinion you only need one of each type of program running when the system loads. You can run the other's when you want to double check you don't have any spyware or viruses. I really don't see any point in running SuperADBlocker because Firefox has one built in and it's pretty dang good I must say :trumpet: . Why pay for software where there is plenty of good free ones that do the same job and in some cases better. Some of the paid ones take up so much system time that your computer does not give full performance for example Norton Internet Security (Great software, slows systems down). :thumbsup: that's just my opinion i'm sure others have theres. :flowers:

Thanks, but from what I have read, superadblocker has superantispyware scan engine, so I would be adding an AS...

Any particular reason why this was cross-posted with security-forums.com?
