what do you guys think is a good anti spyware and firewall for vista 64 bit? or is the windows firewall and windows defender good enough?

They both aren't that great. Use Avast! for antivirus and Spybot S&D for spyware. Something like ZoneAlarm for the firewall should be good. Just make sure you disable Windows firewall so you don't have them both running at the same time.

If u behind a router u don't need any firewalls, plus if an actual hacker would want to get into ur pc I don't think anything would help. Good Firewalls are hardware created and cost a lot! +1 for Spybot S&D. If u really want a good antivirus, and I'm sure u will get lots of different suggestions but "NOD32" is the best in my opinion, but its not free.

NOD32 was the best av when I used windows. I used ZoneAlarm, but I am not sure about their 64 bit support. There is sphinx firewall, but like NOD32, it'll cost ya.

A blocked port is a blocked port. The built in Firewall should be fine for the average user.
