    Which free spyware, free firewall, free antivirus, free security package and combination is the best, most reliable for home PC? It look like there is problems with free product, feel like you have to pay a lot for it for best protection.

    free anti spyware, my recommendation. Microsoft antispyware

    Free Anti virus > AVG

    Free Firewall > Zone Alarm

    Hope this helps

    Here is my free, light on resources, minimalistic security setup:
    Very very reliable combination for me, hardly any crashes - if not, no crashes at all and decent protection.

    Resident:
    Kerio 2.1.5 w/XP Firewall (Yes, I know... but I never get any conflicts)
    AVG Free 7.0
    Process Guard Free
    Prevx

    Non-resident
    Lavasoft Ad-aware
    Spyware Blaster

    Browser:
    Mozilla Firefox
