    Anyone have some quick tips for some PC cleanup? A friend asked me over to help fix her computer (can't get online, she says) and while I'm doing that I figured I'd do the nice thing and run some spyware sweepers and install Firefox for her.

    So this is what I figure I'll do:

    1) Install and run Ad-Aware
    2) Install and run Spybot S&D
    3) Delete most shortcuts to IE and install Firefox, with explanation on what it is and how to use it, etc.

    Any other ideas to be tacked on?

    *ALL* of the updates from Windows Update and an up-to-date Virus solution.

    Also, the free copy of ZoneAlarm from Zone Labs. It's a free (and pretty decent) firewall for Windows users.
