From this forum I have decided that NOD32 is the way to go. I would like to try the free trial first. I know I have to uninstall my current AV, Avast, but need your input for the other sw. I have AdAware, SpyBot,and SpywareBlaster. I also use Firefox, Thunderbird and OpenOffice. Since NOD32 reads like it is av and malware killer, can I get rid of, or need to get rid of the others? Any problem with not having Outlook or Outlook Express? Can I use the install with the special settings if I am installing the trial version? Thanks, Chris.
