    Ok so my computer is completely clean at the moment. I plan on installing Defense Wall, and Zemana Anti Logger. Should i also install a firewall and antivirus just for added protection? As far as firewalls go I was thinking about Outpost or Online Armor and for antivirus I was thinking Microsoft Security Essentials or Avira.... But Im open for suggestions. Soooooooooo Let me know

    First and foremost I always advise uers get a good imaging program, ShadowProtect, Drive Snapshot, Image for Windows, etc. That way should the worst happen you'll always have a set of externally stored images to restore from. After that, this is just preference, I would add a virtualization program, ShadowDefender, Returnil, etc. This will allow you to simply restart your system and have everything back to the way it should be.

    Are you behind a router with a hardware firewall? If so I recommend Kerio 2.15. It's very light and extremely customizable. I also like, and use LooknStop Personal Firewall.

    I use no malware scanners. I find them to be obsolete and unable to keep up with growing and changing threats. I also prefer not having to pay yearly fees for protection.

    If you decide to add a firewall or antivirus, the programs that you listed are good choices IMO.
