Hi
I've now taken delivery of my new laptop (lovely). I came with Norton AV pre installed and I am going to download Spybot.

Any other recommendations?

ZoneAlarm click here
Ad-Aware click here
CCleaner click here
a2 click here

Do I need ZoneAlarm and/or Ad-Aware if I have Spybot. (Excuse my ignorance).
Thanks Matty

Without sounding paranoid different programs pick up on problems others dont. AD-Awares good for a quick scan a2 takes longer but is better and Spybot is good for real time protection.

Ok
Now I have CC Cleaner and a2 too.

Does this sound ok?

Thanks for your help!

You could replace Norton with AVG or Avast. Both free and both use a lot less reaources. Get window defender click here and spybot + adaware. You will be well protected.

I have all the programs I posted, plus SpyBot, Acronis True Image, and Avast! Home Edition...

As Rossi#1 has said, different programs pick up different things
