how safe am i ?

  pinka 10:02 03 Mar 2004

having rid myself (as far as i know) of my backdoor trojan problem, ive done a fresh install of firewall and av, i now have zone alarm pro latest trial version and norton 2004 15 day trial. But im noticing a lot more attempts than usual to access my pc and also messenger is frequently requesting server rights where it wouldnt usually. i guess what i want to know is are there any more steps i can take to tighten up security ?

im up to date on all windows and av updates as i always am.

"a lot more attempts than usual to access my pc"

ignore them - turn off the alerts. 99.99% of these "attempts" are nothing of the sort.
