    I'm running AVG, Zonealarm, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, and Ewido as my "protection package". I'm satisfied that all of them are working properly, alone and in concert with one another.

    I'm just curious about one thing: I know I have to keep the "definitions" files for several of those programs updated, and I do. But how important is it also to keep the source code, so to speak, updated every time a vendor comes out with "revision #next"? Am I safe to just stick with whichever versions I've got now, as long as they always are working with the latest definitions appropriate to each one?

    Yes they work well together.

    Keeping the program/engines up to date is important as well as keeping the definitions up to date.
