    Default how much spyware?

    Can somebody shine the light for me about how much spyware a person needs without slowing down your computer as little as posible? I am on dial-up and I have Avast, Spybot S&D, Malwarebytes, superAntispyware. I also keep Microsoft updates and patches up to date. Do I really need all of this?

    They're all good programs but don't need to be running constantly in the back ground. You need to keep Avast running as it gives you real time virus protection, the others can be run manually when off line to keep the spyware at bay ... the bottom line is, know the sites you're visiting are safe, don't download from torrent type sites and manually run anti-spyware programs on a regular basis (you can also set them to run either when turning on or off the PC when not on the internet).
