Topic Wiki

I would like to have had the following summary when I was looking for my answers. Since I only read the end of the thread, please add other pertinent information.

Best AntiVirus Software
Neither interferes with K9 now.  Do not have more than one antivirus running at a time.
Free - Avast           download here
Paid - Kaspersky

Best Free Spyware
ublock                    download here for FireFox

Firewalls
Windows Firewall should be ON at all times unless your antivirus software comes with one.
If so, it will probably shut off Windows Firewall on its own.



Before following the information contained here, check the date at the bottom to make sure this wiki is relatively up to date.

Do you know how it compares to advanced uninstaller?

I assume you are talking about youruninstaller?

I don't but I know that a lot of those uninstall programs need to be there BEFORE programs get installed where as this one doesn't.

WTF?
So which one do you prefer to be?
1) The blessing said after relieving oneself in the can.
2) A tree used for idol worshipping.

And this:
