I was wondering since in my computer I do a lot of risky things like use P2P file sharing programs. Is there a group of programs that work best for stopping ANY malware from entering your computer?

I have:

Norton 2006 AV
AVG Anti Spyware 7.5
Comodo Firewall
Windows Firewall

All of them updated and for those that apply, all have automatic protection on.

As I said before, I do a lot of risky behavior on my computer and also play online games and download music from LimeWire and such programs.

Is this security setup enough to stop viruses and spyware from coming in?
Does my security set up cover any phishing attempts?

Use an alternative to IE, such as FireFox, or Netscape using FireFoxs rendering engine.
Be careful about the sites you use - only go on trusted websites.
Use a program such as CleanUp to remove cookies, temp files etc., would be best to remove them each time you log off.
I wouldn't recomend using P2P programs, but if you instist on having them, be very careful what you download, don't try to download any .exe files off it.

Make sure if you have Comodo Firewall, that the windows firewall is turned off, if not already. Also here are three good free programs you can download to add to your protection:

Okay so I turned off Windows Firewall.

I installed Spyware Blaster and Spybot S&D.
Is there any other helpful tool I should download?

I had SpywareGuard but the updates only got up to the year 2004 so I uninstalled it. Should I put it back up?
