service pack 2 but i dont like that

zone alarm pro is also a great firewall and the rest, but that is a 15 day trial, when that runs out it would go to just the firewall. when updates come you can get pro back. :P

SP2 is great, but for those of us who also like to take things into our own hands:

Ad-aware
SpywareBlaster
Zone-Alarm

Those I recommend.

firewall: zone alarm basic, free and easy to use.
spyware adware: adaware se, free and a excellent spyware remover
spyware adware: spybot s&d, free and compliments adaware
antivirus: avast, trial i think, not that easy to use, but it gets the job done
