I would be interested in any comments on the following combination, (Currently I am running Zone Alarm Security Suite, MS Windows Defender, Ewido, and Adaware.)

Thinking about changing to ZA free, Avast,Ewido and Adaware & MS Windows Defender.. Trying to get a combination that is both secure and will load in reasonably quick time.

Any thoughts, pros and cons would be great.

Many thanks

ZA free and Avast are a good combo with Ewido as an on demand scanner, as for anti spy I use Windows defender. I have beeen using Avast and ZA pro now for about four years and have never been infected, initially I used adaware and spybot but dropped them in preference for Defender because of the resident monitor. They all play nice together, as an addition I would also consider spyware blaster as a passive defence. With ZA I only load it when I go online as it does take a while to load.
