certainly not an expert here, but isn`t running two virus programs, ie hitman and avg, generally a bad idea. Uses more resources and can conflict with each other. Most of the problems I have seen on other peoples machines come from running two virus programs.
In Addition with avast, I occasionally I do a boot time scan.
Spybot is still a useful program that I use sometimes.
I ran vista premium, used to use zone alarm, but found it unnecessary for blocking stuff going in. It can be useful to block stuff going out, have considered putting it back on due to Adobe feeling so lonely that it need to connect to the mothership all the time.
Often wished that adobe could become a more simple efficient beast, if my wife hadn`t bought the whole mastersuit for her studies in multimedia I would seriously try and get rid of it all together.
