    Well since getting Windows 7 I'm just using the inbuilt firewall with Microsoft Security Essentials, UAC on and IE8 with protected mode on, also a good tight router.
    I have just downloaded Malwarebytes but haven't yet installed it or my paid for SuperAntiSpyware, plus I always used to use SpywareBlaster but have heard it's not necessary now.

    Oh and I mustn't forget an important one, Safe Hex

    just a little update, i installed ThreatFire, its very small, very passive and not very annoying so i may keep it installed at least for a bit.

    I just read most of the messages here and you and I seem to be the only ones using McAfee Suite. I have tried most of the most popular ones but seems to me that McAfee is lighter and protects me 100% and I have been using it for about a year.
    I also leave my UAC ON but no router here.
