    HI Skygunners

    In order to protect your computer against threats know this: 1. Do not rely one one single piece of software (specially if it is Norton or McCAfee, they suck) to protect your pc; just because they come preinstalled on your pc it doesn't mean they're good. You need to have a strategy going from getting to know how threats work and how to get rid ot them to keep yourself informed; know what's out there in terms of antyspyware, antivirus, etc. Download and install AVG Antivirus, or try Avasst or even AdAware they're great I use AVG myself and I love it; and they're FREE. Turn on Windows Firewall it does a good job too. Keep you pc up to date, don't download anything you don't really need.

    try that and you'll see the difference yourself, hope you find it useful

    cheers

    Ws' firewall is not very good, since it does not check outgoing traffic. I recently choose to go with "Kerio," which has been given high marks. "Comodo" may be better, but setting it up is beyond my abilities. I had been using "ZoneAlarm" free but of late have seen it negatively criticised.

    Look into "TrojanHunter." It is not free, but the charge is one-time. AVG Anti-virus 7.5 is regularly recommended. "NOD32" is reputed to be the best A-V program, but there is no free version after the trial period. Same is true for "SpySweeper," which is also high rated.
