Hello and Greetings,
I am in search of the best options for securing my HP G60-235DX which has Windows Vista Home Premium. Currently, I am running PC Tools Spyware Doctor and Registry Mechanic (subsciptions are about to expire), Lavasoft Ad-Aware (free), Malwarebytesâ€™ Anti-Malware (free), and Speedy PC; I have used Avast, Norton, and McAfee in the past. Also, I have Secunia PSI running in the background. I have the usual activity of Facebook, Yahoo!, MySpace and the Internet in general. I run Nero 9 Multimedia Suite for audio and video production. My main issues are with the registry. Registry Mechanic always finds a certain error-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FilesExts\OpenWith , while Speedy PC always misses it.
What would be the best security system(s)--anti-spyware, virus, etc.-- to lock up my PC tighter than a drum? Also, what can I do or use to alleviate jmy registry issues? I have a very, very limited budget.
