Yeah I know there are many similar topics to this but unfortunately they are out-of-date. Times are changing and I want to know what combination of programs do you have on your PC. Mine are:

1. Avast! AntiVirus 4.7
2. COMODO Firewall Pro
3. Spyware Doctor

How about yours? And also, what would you recommend for PC protection?

Comodo Firewall Pro. A personal firewall is good even if you have a hardware one.

Avira AntiVir.

Spyware Terminator. Includes HIPS.

Comodo BOClean.

But most important, be sensible. Don't open spam attachments and scan everything you get from fishy sources including P2P.

I'm easily swayed by user opinions. Spyware Doctor was a resource hog. Now I have both Spybot & Ad-Aware 2007

AVG, Spybot S&D + Ad-Aware. I can't remember why I stopped usig Avira but it might as well have been for a reason of sorts.

BitDefender Antivirus Plus v10. Anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall, all in one.

Spybot S&D, AviraAntivir and Comodo.

My internet now works nonstop, but for some reason my grandfather has problems with it - not working even if he restarts the computer....

The new version does and is crap. Use an older version and just update the list once in a while...
