    can anyone tell me if this is a secure set-up, or am i missing something? maybe this is an overkill?

    i use windows xp home with dsl for internet, and a router with a hardware firewall. i also use the following programs:

    ad-aware se
    ace utilities
    doc scrubber
    spyware blaster
    sygate pro

    i use my computer for chatting and news mostly. i do go to the occasional porn sight, and do allot of online shopping. i like to run my computer light on resources, but is there anything i'm missing to make sure i am fully protected?

    thanks in advance.

    A few you may consider to add for Prevention: (process control) - SSM System Safety Monitor (Free), Process Guard (Payware)

    And Proximitron - using Kye-U's filters (to block unpatched exploits)

    When travelling to the darkside of the web ... disable javascript and java. ;)

    Otherwise you look pretty good. ;)


    Ps. Spybot (free) is also a pretty good AS scanner ... works seamlessly beside Ad-Aware SE.

    ROFLMAO, nice JB, very nice :D

    What JB has pointed to gives a guide in what direction to head, it also gives two very good links to further discussion on what people use and why.

    Cheers :D
