Hello,

I don't have personal experience with the McAfee line of products, but you have all of the major bases covered: firewall, antivirus, antispyware. Safety of those programs (especially the firewall) ultimately depends on your settings and configuration, but it sounds as if you are set. Make sure to download all updates for your security programs.

Cheers,
Tom

You could add Spybot

http://www.filehippo...ch_destroy.html

Spybot - Search & Destroy can detect and remove spyware of different kinds from your computer. Spyware is a relatively new kind of threat that common anti-virus applications do not yet cover. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you didn't intentionally install, if your browser crashes, or if you browser start page has changed without your knowing, you most probably have spyware. But even if you don't see anything, you may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging that is silently tracking your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile of you that will be sold to advertisement companies. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm in trying to see if something snooped into your computer, too :tazz:
