Hello.

I want to find a program that can find worms. Also, you know those little programs that are run by tiny little images on sites; I want to get something that can find those as well?

I have Antivirus software and ad-aware.

Help please.
JD

Hi JD,

Antivirus apps detect worms and a number of trojans as well.

There is a dedicated worm detector and cleaner, but I'd say you antivirus does it well enough.

If you insist, go here: <A HREF="http://wormguard.diamondcs.com.au/">WormGuard - DiamondCS </A>

A dedicated antitrojan would make a little more sense:
http://antivirus.about.com/cs/trojans/
http://anti-trojan.virtualave.net/page3.html

Tips: http://www.wilders.org/anti_trojans.htm

About the 'little things that are run from web sites', what exactly do you mean?
Java applets, ActiveX?

If you're running Norton Antivirus with the script blocking option, that takes care of most of the malicious ones.

You can also tweak the setting in Internet Options/security, and there are a number of programs that allow you to filter out certain content like that, like for example WebWasher or Norton Internet Security.

Another nice little app is <A HREF="http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/system/sdefend.htm">AnalogX Script Defender </A>

Good luck,

Hello and thanks for your reply.

I can't remember what exactly what they're called. "Small," very small images, that tract what I am doing on a website. They are about one pixle in size.

Can you help?

Other information proved very useful. I will add it to my favorites.

Hello.

Yes, that is what I am talking about. Thanks for your assistance.
I know antiviruses can find them, but I wish to know if there are programs for free that are designed to specificly designed to find trojans?

Thank You again
