I am currently running AVG, Zone Alarm, Spybot and Spywareblaster. I check updates atleast weekly and would just like to know if anyone could recommend anything else. I currently feel like my email address is under attack and would like to beef up email securitly if possible or any other types of scanners that are needed.
Definitely download Ad-Aware. Always update daily but if you are like me, I configure everything concerning security to Automatic Download, or you could configure for it to warn you first.
If you are using Internet Explorer, It may improve some aspects of security or screening by using BT-Yahoo BB, or Mozilla, or Opera, or Netscape, of Firefox, etc. These are smaller targets. Personally, I like Mozilla.
Since I got back from holiday(South Africa is a great place:))and came back to all these emails I have been downloading updates daily, have just managed to remove a blaster worm variant(god knows how it got in) I will add adaware to my list of things to do. I have already downloaded mailwasher but first atempt to configure it failed so I must find time to do that. Stuartli I couldn't access your 2nd link for some reason but thanks to all for the advice and I hope to be able to return the favour.
