my pc spec
pentium IV 1.7 GHZ
RAM 512mb
video card - ATI RADEOn 9550 128mb
hard disk - c,d,e (total of 120GB memory)
OS - windows xp

now my RAM is 512mb but the free memory is only 250+mb. i know how much free memory i have because of the tune up utilities 2009 memory optimizer. I already set my start up in msconfig. unchecked the unnecessary programs.

so my first question is. can you set up computer protection for me. for my computer with only 250+ available memory.
before, i tried internet securities like kaspesky and it slow down my computer.

heres my current protection software

1.)spyblaster - this one is good, consume a little bit of memory.
2.) spybot search and destroy - for spyware scanning and for the immunization features. ( i dont run tea timer because it consume 80mb of memory....)
3.) avira free edition - it consume up to 40mb of memory. i removed it temporarily because I want to try another anti virus that consume less memory but good. I tried the AVG free edition with the latest update. but its memory consumption is weird. the avg consume less memory (only 2k!!). but the system consume 60mb of memory. I uninstall it and my system memory usage drops to 3k only. im going to try avast.

to sum it up i got:

1.) spybot search and destroy
2.) spyblaster

so what other protection do you recommend/ prefer?. please build my protection security.

of course i need to upgrade my RAM. but for now i want to optimize everything in my limited RAM.

second question, how do i know if my OS works perfectly?. where and how can i check it?.

last question is how can i watch internet videos smoothly?.
when i watch youtube videos. it frequently pausing. it's not running smoothly. I already clean the temps, cookies etc. before, when we subscribe for internet connection, watch internet video for the first time. the videos runs perfectly and smoothly.

i thank you guys for your help in ADVANCE!. ^_^ please reply...

(sorry for posting it here, i already post it in the other part, geek talk but there are few people there..)
