    What's the best utility package out there for keeping a computer lean and mean? Would really be interested in what you pro's (Nitro, Gnomey, Baron, and the usual suspects) use, and if it's just as powerful as off-the-shelf stuff. I don't mind paying a premium for something that'll keep everything in top shape.

    Currently I use:
  2. NOD32 by eset
    Have not had a virus in 3 years since using it. Greatest Antivirus application, hands down, shame not many people know about it.

    I only have version 9, but always use it to keep the hard drives running fast and efficient. Can set-up schedules as well.

    Spybot Search & Destroy
    both found on are good for spyware.

    McAfee Firewall for software firewall I use.

    Those are a few suggestions to keeping the PC in great shape.

    Best protection way is to keep the PC you use for surfing and downloading seperate than you use for Trading/Investing.

    Great JM,

    Now if someone can post a powerful registry maint., and uninstall programs, I think we'll have the major bases covered.

    I've been using adAware for years. Nice.

    * The reason I put an uninstall utility up there is because the Windows app. always seem to leave files and dead shortcuts all over the place.
