Hi all,
I have been clean for 3 years and I do ge where the dirt is so here is my fav's on secerty software. I'll give you its name and ruffly what it dose, the rest I'll leave to you.

FireWall, online armor (takes a lil knowlage of your os to correctly run, my advise if unsure is to block without a checked box, and if something messes up next time allow)
Antivirus, Avast (has multi moduals that scan differnt things)
Addware, Spybot S&D (as mentioned above. this has a registry scanner, and know bad site blacklisting. Pluse it dose a good scan too)
Adaware (now it has a real time scan witch is good it even catches viruses before my avast)
IP blocker, peer guardian 2 (massive block lists keeping them "the man" out)

all free, but this much safety comes at a price. my box runs them fine but I dont recomend all of them if your under 512 ram, even then it is going to hurt.

I hope this helps someone.
