I've got four of the ones you listed! Yay!


You missed PrevX. It's an anti-spyware program. I downloaded the free version of it last year but uninstalled it only because it made my computer too slow (probably because having about four anti-virus/spyware programs and a firewall running at once just didn't allow another one of these programs in). But it has amazingly indepth features and is a pretty good tool all-around.


Thanks for compiling this list. I'm sure it'll help a lot of people to secure their computers. It kills me when my friends tell me they don't know where to get anti-virus/spyware software and firewalls to protect their computer and then go on complaining about viruses.
