Thanks. For AV I decided to try AVS from AOL/Kapersky instead of
Antivir, the best rated on majorgeeks, but for anti spyware I looked at
SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard. The latter doesn't seem to have had any
updates since 2004, so should I consider it defunct?

SpywareBlaster (and SpywareGuard) are passive, but preventive.
Other antispyware is usually repressive (afterwards).
I do not use SpywareBlaster as I use Mozilla Firefox and not IE.

For antispyware I use (all freeware):
- Comodo Anti Malware (ex BOClean) (preventive)
http://www.comodo.com/boclean/boclean.html
(BOClean was used and recommended by many people!)

Weekly I scan (= afterwards) with:
- AdAware
http://www.lavasoft.com /
- Spybot
http://www.safer-networking.org/en /
- SuperAntiSpyware
http://www.superantispyware.com /
(new in the field, very good results)

Additionally I scan with:
- A-squared Free
http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free /
(second opinion, overlap between anti-virus and anti-spyware)

As SpywareGuard is not updated (any more?),
I would prefer SpywareBlaster, which I recommend to friends.

(both from the same company)

I use Firefox too. SwB claims to protect that as well. Is it really only
IE that needs protecting because of ActiveX etc?

Tony Houghton was thinking very hard :

In my opinion: Yes.

I use Firefox with "NoScript".
I keep cookies "until I close Firefox".
That should be sufficient.
