Just got done making my first pc, with lots of help reading this site, and it has gone very smoothly. I've been doing some searching on good free download programs to help keep the pc protected and sharp. Could use some advice on which programs I should have and maybe ones that aren't needed. OS is Vista 64 bit home edition, CPU is Q6600 quad core 2.4
Currently have: Avg free edition, Speedfan, Registry Mechanic, Ad-Aware antispyware and Everest Home edition. Also using the windows firewall atm.
I have used ZoneAlarm firewall on previous comp and liked it, my question is should I use the Windows firewall or zonealarm or both?
Any other good free download products I should get?
Also, I have updated my motherboard driver from Nvidia website (mobo is an Asus P5N-E SLI), but Everest currently does not recognize my mobo or the chipset when I run the program. Any ideas?
Thanks for any help
