I admit that I'm satisfactorily protected right now, especially since most of my surfing is in Sandboxie. However, having said that, almost all "how tos" list a FW, a-v and a-sw. For a long time, relative to a-sw, I've only kept Windows Defender enabled but since installing Mamutu have shut it down. So I've got Online Armor Premium with its HIPS, NOD32 with its supposed a-sw protection and now Mamutu enabled, however, unless I'm mistaken, non of these are specific a-sw apps. I realize adware/spyware is not necessarily the most dangerous thing to land on a pc but why do all of the "experts" recommend a-sw programs? Of course I can also scan periodically with WD, Syware Doctor (starter edition) and Malwarebytes and could install and do the same with Super AS.
