Try to make a custom scan, there's an option to add it.

Sure, or what do you mean exactly?
There's also an automatic rootkit scan at system start... :)

on vista, simply use windows firewall as a free firewall.
To use it as a two way firewall follow,

Asyn,
why are you using a-squared if you are already using Avast which is antispyware too.

I gave those hub links, because there is no need to use another free firewall, other than windows built in firewall, if you are on vista. Use Windows Firewall as a two way firewall. For details on using Windows Firewall as a two way firewall, follow my hub, posted first.
Asyn is using Comodo as a free firewall solution.

I only use it on demand for a second opinion, if needed. ;)

1. Sure, ok. Nevertheless this was off topic here. There are other threads or places this would fit better.
2. True. So? ;)
