I'm going to be visiting my in-laws this weekend, in part to treat their ailing computer, which sounds to be suffering from a myriad of malware. I want to make sure I have the complete set of tools I need. More details inside.

Aside from the normal host of problems associated with IE on XP, including popups and toolbars, their dial-up connection fails within a minute or so of connecting, everytime. As a result, I won't be able to download any software once I get there. Instead, I'm burning a disk to bring with me. So far I've got Adaware, Spybot S&D, AVG, and Firefox, along with all the relevant definition updates. Any other ideas? And any ideas what could be causing the dial-up connection to futz out? I know it's not a hardware problem.
