Couple of notes, Geoff.

Avira and AVG used to be pretty much the same. Then AVG decided to inflate the heck out of their software. It is now fairly bloated I no longer recommend it.

Ccleaner is a good program for cleaning up unwanted files, but I've seen it butcher registries. Use at your own discretion.

Lastly, with a good router between you and the internet and a good antivirus program, a firewall isn't as necessary as it used to be. The router keeps unwanted traffic from getting in and the antivirus keeps you from installing software that will allow unwanted transmissions from getting out.

Surf safe, don't open or run stuff you are unsure of and that's half the battle.

I like to plug a power strip into itself. The current loop generates infinite free electricity!
I've come up with a solution that I honestly think works out best for one of both of us.

I don't have firewalls on my desktops, only the laptops likely to leave the building.
