PC running XP sp3

Virus protection: Avast! (free version)
Firewall: Sunbelt (free version)
Spyware blaster (free version-only for IE)

My problem is finding programs that handle Chrome. Spyware blaster is only for IE.. From what I *think* I understand, Avast! helps with spyware.

I feel like I should have more anti-spyware/malware options, but don't want to have a conflict and want them to work with Chrome.

Thanks for the help!

I don’t think spyware blaster is available for chrome. You may install any other AV program for chrome like Immunet, Panda Cloud, Kaspersky or any other anti-malware program.

Please note that installing multiple antivirus programs can actually cause conflicts and reduce the quality of the your protection.

 

@piggylubber, you could try installing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in addition. It runs separately and won't conflict with any of those programs. Otherwise you have a good security setup. :)
