I agree! All I have out of the software he has mentioned is the Spybot and Ad-Aware! (most websites also say these two are enough!) Also now that Spybot comes with a Resident protection, i don think half the software you have mentioned, like wrt hijacking browsers etc, are necessary at all! Spamfighter, ok! And Firewall, only one is necessary! But all i run is the Windows firewall! I'm satisfied with it! (My ISP itself has many firwalls)! But for most ppl i suggest one firewall! But they are too Intrusive!

Well, azureus, bitcomet are P2P not essential to stay alive in `broadband'! Flashget and Flashfxp are commercial software (not freeware).. hence!
