    recommended security setup, what free app do you all recommend? You kind of come away from the Windows Defender (all I use) thread with the feeling that it is better than nothing. So again I ask, what free (enabled/running) anti-spyware do you all use? Since I'm researching "free" and recommendations only, I would hope this would get a free pass should it evolve into an A is better than B thread. Thank you!

    If you're using Internet Explorer, you could install Spybot - Search & Destroy and apply only the immunizations. Do not install the component TeaTimer.

    It also applies immunizations to Opera. Not sure if it only blocks tracking cookies for Firefox, though.

    You could also install SpywareBlaster. For Firefox, it will only block tracking cookies.

    Comodo, Sandboxie or Geswall can't go wrong with either.

    Why do you say not to install the TeaTimer? Isn't that was the realtime element of Spybot? I got the impression that's what ratchet was asking for.

    Well, if the intent is to make use of something chatty, then better options are out there for free.

    That said, why not make use of Spybot's immunizations, and perhaps some other app that would alert the user in a more efficient way?
