Thanks for the advice. My reason for asking is that my laptop is really
slooow. 2 questions:
- What is a better antivirus and antispyware package (either as 1 or 2
programs). I need something which is reliable but quick.
- Do I also need Windows Defender? (I ask because it is sitting on my laptop
and I don't know much about it).
For some background, my laptop is 2 years old but I use it for simple stuff
like word processing, internet. I am very keen to have it spyware-free,
since I do my internet banking via this laptop.

If computer resource use is an issue consider trying Nod32 for anti-
virus protection.

There are cheaper solutions but no better solutions.

Do NOT run two virus programs at the same time. I use F-Secure myself. My
personal experience is not to even run any two virus or spyware programs at
the same time. Conflicts can occur.

I use free Ad aware which is not running in real time. I do a scan weekly. I
also use free spybot Search and Destroy.

Be sure to use a firewall like Comodo if you do banking.
