My wife bought a notepad which came with a trial version of McAfee which has now run out.I have installed AVG Free version can I install anything else say MSE SPYWAREBLASTER SUPERANTISPYWARE MALWAREBYTES OR PC TOOLS FIREWALL PLUS only has AVG at present

Not MSE if you are using AVG.And you can install the rest.

What operating system?

If Vista or windows 7 use
Windows own firewall
MSE Microsoft security Essentials
SpywareBlaster as a blocker

you can also add the free versions of Superantispyware and Malwarebytes as a backup scanner


Add Ccleaner to keep it clear of accumulated junk and a good spam filter and you have all you need.

Now have AVG free version and PC Tools Firewall plus will that be enough or should I install some of the other programs I mentioned earlier

  ponytail 12:59 24 Oct 10

I have decided on the following four programs.
AVG Free, spywareblaster,Pc Tools Firewall Plus and Malwarebytes any comments would be appreciated

Maybe best paying for the Pro version of Malwarebytes I believe it is a one off payment and you can get it cheaper by looking for coupon codes for it.
That should stop anything from downloading on to your computer while Browsing.
If not just add superantispyware as well.

My wife has the same on her notepad except swap MSE for AVG Free version.
How does that look.
