hey new here ldo i dont have any apparent problems at the moment, but im trying to figure out what i should be doing and what software i should have to keep things running smoothly. not sure exactly how to go about it however. best thing i can do i guess is list what im using here, and have somebody yell at me that i posted in the wrong place, and thenget told where to post this is what i have running/use on a regular basis (with windows 7): avira free antivirus advanced system care 5 ccleaner iobit malware fighter i just installed zone alarm free now, what i dont know is if i have redundancy, if theyre incompatable with each other, or if theyre incompatable with any windows programs (defender, whatever), or if im missing anything obvious so, again, hi. if anybody wants to point me in the right direction, i would appreciate it. i would love to be able to know wtf im doing and be able to help others some day thanks!
