hi, just reformatted the laptop, only took a whole day, anyway...i would like to keep it clear of progs which i dont need, i have avg, ad-aware, and the built in firewall, I did have both of the above, but wondered if i could get away with just one of them, do they not both do the same thing? so is one better than the other?

thanks

Why not try them both,and keep the one you feel is best. I`ve kept Spybot as it seems to do the job just right for me.

I would still install both Spyware blaster installs Dwords in the regestry to stop spyware bieng loaded in the first place and spybot will scan and remove, somthing spyware blaster wont,also there is spyware Guard from the same people that made spyware blaster this is a good program to this runs in the back ground like spybots SD resident.
