Just wondering if anyone had some imput on the best free apps to run on a brand new installation of xp sp2... mainly Anti-virus, Anti-spyware, software based firewall... ect. The rules change from time to time, and I have not been following the changes for some time, so I thought I would create a thread and ask for some advice here..

I usually run:
Free AVG AV
the new free AVG antispyware
adaware... scan about once a month
spybot to immunize... ocasionally scan.
Firefox for my web browser.

I used to run zone alarm, but found it was interfering alot with my ability to network my home computers... That could be a secondary question... Is there a way to run a software based firewall so that it does not interfere with networking within a home workgroup?

your advice is appreciated. Thanks!
