    Get rid of Norton/McAfee and disable Windows Defender.

    Get Comodo Firewall 3

    Get Avast Home AV

    Get some of the tools from WT's sig.
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.

    Maybe go to a freeware site like this (snapfiles) and review the required programs, including those by users, and any ratings...
