I currently use Zone Alarm free firewall, avast On-Access scanner, CounterSpy, AdAware personal and just recently installed a-Squared with a-Squared guard. All except AdAware are active and running and I have some question whether or not I need all of them running at the same time mainly because a-Squared guard uses almost 80,000k of resources while it's running. With avast using about 35,000k and CounterSpy using about 40,000k I was just wondering if it's necessary to have all of them "running" at the same time. Would it be drastically "unsafe" to shut down a-Squared guard and only use its scanner say 1x a week and keep avast, Zone Alarm and CounterSpy running? Or is that just too much temptation for Lady Fate to bypass?
