I was reading through the initial tutorial on how to protect my computer, and saw that spyware, firewall and antivirus could all work together in unisan. I downloaded Kario firewall, Spware blaster, seek and destroy, and spywareguard. I wanted to find an antivirus software that is better than Norton too (Any suggestions?). I have so many system alert popups now, that it's more annoying than the add popups. Besides that I don't really know what to deny and what to permit. Any ideas to help me simplify and streamline my security?

Hi jmibullfrog...

For Anti-Virus, there are quite a few that are preferrable to Norton or McAfee. Avast and AVG both have free versions that are very adequate and easy to use. I prefer Avast, but they are both good. If you would rather purchase a "full version", have a look at Nod32.

For training the Firewall, a good rule of thumb is this: If you open an application and a warning pops up, it is probably directly related to that application. Tick the box to "Remember this action" (or similar), choose "Allow", and accept the change if prompted. Before long, it will be only the uninvited actions that will generate a warning.
