As you can tell I know little about these subjects, but have learned much from reading the posts on here.
I have Windows XP
I recently dumped IE and opted to try Mozilla (what a breeze that was)
I run upgrades of AVG
I run Zone Alarm (again an easier setup then I could have amagined)
I also run spywaregaurd, adaware and spybot (update them often)
Am I missing anything?
There are several in this house that use this machine, I cannot always monitor it's use, but after the last infection I had had enough and dumped IE for Mozilla.
I would appreciate your opinions.

I am curious as to how your experience with Mozilla has been. I don't really know too much about it but, have been looking into it a bit.

I have to tell you that I am please. I was a bit afraid that it would be cumbersome, but I have found that it is anything but.
The set up was a breeze which I did not expect it to be and the day to day use is so close to IE's that I really can't tell much of a diiference. It also appears to be somewhat quicker then IE.
This is coming from someone who is not saavy with computers.
I cannot see going back to IE at this point.
EDITED TO ADD:
I did the Mozilla switch because I am not the only one that uses this machine so security was real important to me. I am a afe surfer, but I needed to add a bit of security while I am not here. I am not saavy, but I also know that Mozilla is not a single answer to the security question either. I still scan with ad-aware, spybot my regular AV as well as panda and runa secure firewall.
