    Hey guys, I just bought a Toshiba laptop that I want to use for mostly business purposes. I do like to surf the net and imagine it will happen with this PC as well. I am using FireFox browser, Norton Antivirus and Ad Aware SE. Is that enough or should I consider getting something else?

    And I know...stay away from Porn sites...:kekeke:

    Sounds like you've got it covered.. maybe get Spybot search and destroy
    and for a 2nd anti virus get AVG.

    I wouldnt run 2 antiviruses. can get nasty. use mcafee housecall as a second one if you need a second opinion.. Its web based. I prefer AVG for antivirus

    I like the teatimer that comes with spybot search and destroy. Adaware a good secondary spyware killer but spybot is better and is more upto date.

    Im also a big anti norton anything. There proggies tend to cause more problems then they solve IMHO. I use the built in firewall in sp2, or if i was going to use a firewll next to that i'd use zonealarm.


    Keep up to date on your virus definitions and most importantly on windows update. All in all you're doing better then most and everybody is entitled to their own security regime. Just a couple of suggestions and comments, take them for what there worth.
