Balancing protection and computer speed?

  1. Hello,

    This is my first post here and i firstly wanted to thank the people who gave the advice on how to defeat the W32.Myzor.FK virus as i was close to reformatting my pc today untill i found this site. It is now fixed (touch wood)

    I also followed the advice about setting my pc up so it is not so prone to attack but i have two questions if anyone can help.

    1. How do i set up certain programs so they can be used in my guest account as some of them are missing?

    2. I have installed; Adaware, Counterspy, AVG, Spyware Doctor & ewido. My connection now seems to be very slow. Is this too much protection and what should i uninstall or do to reach a compromise?

    Thanks in advance

    Matteo

    you have too much. No need to have ewido and counterspy and others always running.
    Only use when necessary.

    use mike lin's startup editor to stop autoloading of software.
