    All the above.

    Really, it all depends on what you need secured. If you REALLY want security, pull out your NIC, keyboard and graphics card from your PC. icon_wink.gif

    At minimum, have AV/spyware and firewall. A broadband modem performing NAT is a good defense from someone attacking your PC by IP, so even if you only had one PC connected to a DSL/Cable modem, it is a good idea to use the router.

    The only truly secure PC is one placing in a room with no doors or windows and not connected to anything except its own perepherils icon_wink.gif
