    I am running AdAware Pro with AdWatch as well as TeaTimer form the new Spybot Search & Destroy. Is this redundat? Any benefit to running both (i am talking about AdWatch and TeaTimer). AdWatch does function as a popup stopper and as far as I can tell, Teatimer does not. Am I mistaken? My sercurity programs are as follows...do you think I can safetly ditch any of them?

    Spybot S&D
    AdAware with AdWatch
    BoClean (just runs on startup and then stops)
    TDS-3 (on demand scanner)
    Spyware Blaster
    MRU Blaster
    McAfee Virus Scan

    IMO you don't have enough. But that's just my opinion.

    Perhaps you could recommend what further protective applications would be useful?

    Yes,..I use a linksys firewall router. I also run through an anonmizer proxy. My protection is more than enough.

    I dont. The way I look at it, if the 2 ati trojans and spyware proggies i use dont catch whatever it is that is sending illicit packets out of my pc, then **** it. it aint worth it..none of it is. still amazes me on this board when i read that peeps still get viruses etc. dont u consider all this effort and expense for programs a waste if they arent effective. ive never had an issue personally with my current setup.

    I've never had any such probs yet either, but I really must say that a software firewall wouldn't be a bad idea to monitor outgoing, and there's plenty of good free ones. I run a router also but my own PC is on DMZ host for gaming. I used Sygate 5.5 before I got a router and I still use it on the other PC's which are hidden behind the router.
