What Security Programs and Tools do you use? (What's on your Desktop?)

I've been reviewing my PC security and some of the other applications that I have installed over time and just wondered what recommendations others have.
Im currently using:-
AVG Anti-Virus 8
Comodo Firewall Pro (Is Zone Alarm better / less intrusive)
Spyware Terminator
CCleaner
and Registry Mechanic

Other tools:-
Acala DVD Ripper
PSPWare and PSP Video 9
Videora iPhone Converter
Super (c)
ImgBurn
uTorrent

P2P apps:- Tvants, Ppstream, Sopcast, PPmate + TVU

Any suggestions or better alternatives?

Comodo or Zone Alarm?
#2
Did zone alarm ever recover? They used to be good years ago but went downhill. I haven't found a good non-annoying firewall yet.

I like Avast! for the anti-virus though, as it's nice and quiet.

The other other utility I find essential is wordweb.

i use

avira ... from download.com
win utilities
ccleaner
#4
No antivirus or firewall
#5
NOD32 from [url]www.eset.co.uk[/url]

either just NOD32 AV or the NOD32 security suite, by far the most lightweight in terms of memory, cpu utilisation etc as well as being one of the first to release definitions.

Have installed it for many people and have rolled it out across a network of about 500 PC's with not a single issue.

avg, comodo and adblock pro

Don't use software firewall if you have one on your router.

I use (just a sample really)

Kaspersky AV
TuneUp Utils 2009
uTorrent
HiJackthis
Portable Apps
Lan Spy
Air Sniffer
GSpot
Codecs (XVid, DivX, FDD, etc etc)
Ghost
Ubuntu
Nero
Sony Vegas
Discreet Combustion
Smarterrm
VPN Software
Ethereal
Cisco Works
Solarwinds
Particle illusion

That'll do for now, lol.
