Great guide so far!

Two programs I use that you might like to add onto the list are SpywareBlaster and ThreatFire as an extra layer of protection. They're both also very light on resources.

Personally, I wouldn't recommend using AVG 8.0. There are TONS of complaints about it slowing down the system or causing problems. Frankly, its better to use Avast or Avira.

I don't use a software firewall, so I can't comment on that. Most people will probably find the Windows Firewall adequate though..

Miyuki, is McAfee a good choice for virus scanning/protection? I have it and I'm not sure if it's really helpful since I've heard bad things about it. ;x

Sorry for not updating the guide and replying to the thread for some time @_@


Guides updated with some useful links and tips

[lol, late reply]
@ Genchou - Should be sufficient, and if your license still valid, I suggest you to stick with it for a moment.

Good third party software tools, though I know most of them personally myself

You could add Revo Uninstaller, basically it has four modes of uninstalling things (in-depth registry and elements) and some other built-in features that are like CC-Cleaner

Superantispyware could be up there with some anti-spywares too.

Thanks.

And yes, its pretty 'common', but maybe not to others ;o

Ah, you reminded me I need to 're-organize' the post and /updates it ^^;

About the self protection, yes, some of them easily /killed by malwares [note: AVG], since I've seen them myself, lol. But depends on the user, they don't just blindly clicks anything .__.;

Just additional info, for those who have 4GB ram or more on Windows Vista [32-bit], but it displays as 3GB instead, you guys can download Ultimate Windows Tweaker, here
- Ultimate Windows Tweaker v2, a Tweak UI for Windows 7 & Vista | The Windows Club

- Make sure you run it as administrator
- Go to System Performance
- Tick "Enable Support for 4GB of RAM on 32-bit Windows OS"
- Click on Apply
- Restart
