You also need a firewall, the windows firewall is very limited. sunbelt kerio is my favourite as it's free.
While Mcaffee may not cost you anything, in money, it can slow your computer. Personally, I don't like "suites" as the try and do too much, and as a result get bloated. There are several free Antivirus programs that are very effective, AVG, or Avast being the usual recommendations.

I don't use Window's Firewall" either. Currently, I have McAfee's firewall installed, as well as their AV program (part of the suite). I understand what you're saying about suites getting bloated, but wouldn't I run into the same problem by installing several different programs to take care of my Firewall, Virus Scan, and such?? I've used AVG and Zone Alarm in the past but recently have had several infection problems while using Zone Alarm so am considering going back to AVG.
So, should I do as I've done in the past and install Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster, AdAware and a stand alone firewall and stand alone virus scanner?
