  • I'm not familiar with Spyware Terminator. AVG isn't bad with resources, so there may be another issue going on.

    OneCare provides all of the items you list, except Phishing, which is provided by enabling the Phishing filter in Internet Explorer. If you use an alternative browser, the IE Phishing filter does not apply.

    OneCare also provides other things, such as a configurable 2 way firewall and backup.

    If you PC meets the requirements - http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-us/purchase/sysreq.htm, uninstall AVG and Spyware Terminator and any other protection that may still be installed. Then try OneCare for up to 90 days for free - http://onecare.live.com

    If it does not meet your needs, you can remove it and seek alternative.

    By the way, typing in all capital letters is considered SHOUTING and is frowned up in Internet communities.
