    If there's a site, give me the link, I'll be more than happy to read it.

    Basically, I'm rather outdated on all these new thingamawuts, and would wish to know, which are the best the intrawerbz has to offer these modern days:

    Registry up keeper
    Disk defragmenter
    Firewall
    Anti virus and anti spyware
    Stuff

    You may post now. And quickly.

    Edit: This is a family PC, explains a lot huh?

    Before thanking you, quickly, I ask of you this, how do you know if they are the best? As every website I've visited claims they're the best with multiple awards won and such.
