    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?

    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

    No antivirus or firewall

    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.
