Antivirus: NOD32 :-[ (got 14 months license for free)
Firewall: Windows XP SP2 Firewall
Anti-spyware: None

I was also using like 5 different types of anti-spyware but some day i simply removed them all since all they ever detected were some stupid tracking cookies.
So no need for them. Firefox or Opera somehow remove any need for anti-spyware tools if you also at least check the source of software you just downloaded...

Simple plain hammer... when I see something is trying to enter my computer I like to smash it with my hammer. That way I don't have to worry about recovery of all those damaged files and folders.  ;D

  Avast  Pro resident
  ClamWin
  Spybot
  Spywareblaster
  Microsoft Beta
  Sunbelt Firewall

PS: I have been trying out Netscape 8.1, Which has a spyscanner built into the browser.
I don't know how good it  is.
I have used it twice each time it has said I have spyware on the computer.
All the rest comes up clear.

Yes... and you my friend, forgot to mention what you told me few months ago... you also hired 4 body guards to guard your PC while you are away. So if something even try to enter your computer they will give it a good punching and kicking.

Also, those piles of potatoes as a barrier, true natural, 100% bio firewall... although it's not freeware one, but it's effective... even if something passes through that barrier, you can always pick up some of those potatoes and start throwing them at those pests...  ;D
