    USB Key-Ring Utilities: I always carry a physically small 1Gb USB stick around attached to my keyring - sort of Swiss army-knife of utilities. Of course it's always changing and suggestions are welcome. Most of the programmes are free but you can check on the web. Some are actually worth buying. I use AVG anti-virus, AdAware from Lavasoft and Spybot for spyware defence, but most importantly I use Mailwasher to look at my e-mail before downloading.
