All up and running

Thanks to Tarq57 and Glenn30 for all the help. Avast, ZoneAlarm and Superantispyware are up and running plus Malwarebytes. No fights as yet. All seem to get on well with one another. First scans found 12 spyware and 38 malware -- all destroyed. System a little faster since delete of Norton and will be faster still when 1G stick of ram rammed in, (forgive the pun).

Glad it's all running well.
You should be pretty secure with that lot, and depending on user practices, more secure than the "average" user.
Quite a buzz getting a Windows 'pooter running nicely, isn't it?

Good job... you are about as secure...

as can be expected. Watch where you go online. With the tools you have it should be smooth sailing. Keep them updated with the latest databases and run them manually from time to time or as the need may arise.

Put that extra stick of ram in... should improve performance.
