1. Is it possible to have too much spy/adware protection Counting WinPatrol and my Yahoo! Online (ISP) Protection Suite I think I have six  programs? "Spybot S&D", Trend Micro's "AntiSpyware" Trial, "Spyware Doctor", Lavasoft's - "Ad-Aware SE Personal", oh and also "CleanUp!", in addition to the aforementioned "Yahoo! AntiSpy" and "WinPatrol" - is this TOO MUCH and OVERKILL? HAVE I BECOME PARANOID??) - in other words, is it not different from Antivirus protection where only one program should be present (working)?
2. I really don't know much about what I am doing - I have a Firefox browser AND an IE browser at the ready at all times, and I switch from one to the other when I have problems - and oh do I have problems - is this advisable - or what should I have going on here please?
3. Occasionally my mouse pointer is freezing, or locking up, other times I am able to move it - but not able to select or click on anything with it - wazup wit dat? (Oh and I get a "Generic" Error code# 0X 8000 4003 sometimes, and other times get a message telling me I need some plug-ins to show stuff - but I cannot find these plug-ins - (this last one, "plug-in's, is from Mozilla/Firefox - oh, and I am always having to send "talkback info" to them).
Thank you very much in advance for any suggestion/advice - SOLUTIONS!
