on my PC i have installed spyware blaster and a programme called secretmaker to try and protect it.I run adaware fairly often as well to clean it up. Am i doing enough to protect it or is there anything else I should be using, dont really want to pay unless I have to, is there anything else I need which can be downloaded for free ?

my unit is an old pentium 2 if that helps, thanks in advance..........

How do i install the programs that you placed on my reply

Most if not all the files listed by spuds will be .exe files you just double click them. I would suggest you just do a default setup ie just click next or ok when required as programs such as firewalls and the like will allow you to adjust settings if required at a later date

Sweeney Todd--If you load the above suggestions into a downloader programme, then you can use these at a later date.Otherwise you can download direct and use the programmes straight away.

Do not use two firewalls or two anti-virus programmes together, as these may course a confliction problem. The Adaware/Cleaner type programmes will work quite well together and are compatible with each other.
