What programs would you recommend for each? I have used BitDefender and Kaspersky in the past, and they both work great. BitDefender has done more for me than anything though. Are there any more recommendations? Even free ones. As for firewall. I used to use black ice a long time ago, then I just used BitDefenders firewall, but I don know if its done its job. And spyware, well, I've gone through too many applications to help me out, im a little blurry on whats good to use.
