Acer Predator 21X review
Simple dont use the net, sorry this was a rant, I have had every security issue going im formating hard drives monthly (now i have vista it was fortnightly on xp) I check the net and here for reviews i have more security than fort knox and bang a trojan a hidden virus and my pc plays up, is there realy any point to buying net security ok they warn you but they cant remove half the crp i am hit with
Lots of free security programs out there that do a good job.Because you are paying does not make it better.I agree with you its becoming almost impossible to keep your computer Virus free nowadays.I don't like the all in one Security Suites they are harder to repair.Individually at least you know where the problem is.I am quite happy with the freebies and to be honest some of the security Suites that you have to pay for I would not use even if they were free.If you give us a list of all your Security programs including your firewall we may be able to suggest others that may be helpful to you.
i find this hard believe what are you using as antivirus
If you are formatting because you have a virus beit xp or vista monthly orr fortnightly then your problem lies in your internet activities.
Can't remember when i last had a virus AVG8 a router firewall and common sence i all you need.
Formatting ur hard drive does not remove the Trojan/virus, it merely stops windows from seeing what’s on ur hard drive. I would like to ask just what antivirus programmes you are using right now & any other form of protection you are currently using.
I agree with sinbads, I have had only two nasties in the last eight years, and they were in the very early days not long after I got my first PC (at the age of 65).
I use AVG free, Ad-Aware free, Sunbelt Pers Firewall (formerly Kerio) paid for version, Glary Utilies (which includes Malware remover) free, Diskeeper paid for version and common sense - free!
I am on-line just about every day and from morning till night most days.
I too agree with Sinbads. I have had only one alert in two years using Fsecure.
What security have you got ?

As you say no internet,then the virus is coming from something you are reloading on the computer !
If you are loading something that is infected and you give permission to install the .exe then this may well bypass your security.Dont forget to scan everything as load it,using your upto date AV and Mbam will cure most problems if caught early enough click here
Just for reference click here
People are offering good advice aboive but it seems that you are reinfecting your computer each time somehow - Sorry to preach but you do need to practice safe surfing and use the antivirus, anti-malware and firewall recommendations offered properly.
skidsy's last link is what you must read to stop this cycle of pain!
Also dont forget to scan any external hard drives or USB sticks as the nasty may be infecting them as well,
If any one is interested you can get Norton 360 or 2009 for 90 days free
They are a big improvement on old Norton products
