    Hi guys!

    I just got a new computer and I have thus far installed Comodo Firewall/Defense +, Avast anti-virus Free and MBAM free.

    I'm looking for a real-time anti-malware program but am uncertain which to get. It has to be free. On my old PC I used Ad-Aware 9 which worked fine with my firewall and anti-virus. However I have heard that Ad-Aware isn't as good these days so I was looking for a replacement.

    So what say you?

    Thanks.

    you already have enough.

    good free stuff you could add:
    Sandboxie, NoScript, etc...

    and an imaging app.
    that should be your top priority, afaic.

    Ok, I will look into those two.

    How about Spybot? Is that still a good product?


    Thank you.
