IS AVG just an antivirus or is it a spyware also? Is it a good one?

Should I use all of those recommended spyware programs or just one?

I only use Firefox...

What do you know about COMODO?

Doesn't Windows provide a Firewall? Is that no good?

What about the Norton programs? Lots of popularity, but not sure if they're any good.

AVG is an anti-virus only.
Just use one or two of the programs recommended.
Comodo Firewall - I kow lots who use it and I recommend you use it too.

Windows comes with a firewall, but it's not as strong as something like Comodo

Norton - Yes, hugely popular, but can really slow down the system.

If I use COMODO or one of the other Firewalls, should I disable the WIndows Firewall?

Hello.
Yes, but Comodo should do that for you.
