    Something else that need to kept updated. (PBKC)

    Something else I try to remember.
    Just because one uses the same security programs for years and years means little in todays computing.
    One still has to be watchful. Security programs change so often with Upgrades and Updates, at times you don't know what is going on.
    I really don't care for security program that include a bunch of things that have nothing to do with security.
    I will do my own computer cleaning, tuning ect.

    It's been many years sense I have tested lots of brands of Security programs. But I'm still watchful.
    I keep things manually updated several times a day.
    When I shut down my computer for a couple of hours, when I start them again, the first thing I do is update my security programs.
    The bad guys create infection so quick, it doesn't take long to get behind on updates. I also check for Windows updates.
    It only takes a few minutes to check them all.
    What I use is in (My System Specs) and so far they work and I trust them, but I still pay attention to what I'm doing.
    I scan all downloads with three programs.

    So the person "Me" between the keyboard and the chair is a security program and I must be up to date.

    You should qualify those statements with fact, so that others can get an holistic idea what's good 'n bad.

    A muti-tiered solution is what most security experts advise - firewall being just one.

    After doing some testing I decided to just go with WD, windows firewall and a firewall on my router, it seems to work just fine, so I don't need any more than that. I might get superantispyware to help me get rid of tracking cookies and as an extra layer of protection against spyware, but that's about it.

    OK, so i can't really decide. Should i go with superantispyware to help me get rid of tracking cookies as well as giving me an extra cleaner against spyware, or should i just go with WD and that's it? What do you guys think?

    I would always recommend a Multi-Layer approach, so running WD "Live" at all times plus the occasional complete scan with SAS would meet this criteria.

    Once a week should be OK (remember to always check that you have the latest version of the program plus any Definitions files before you scan)
