Have a read of click here and click here

Then consider downloading from click here .You will need to register (free). I have been using this in conjunction with Norton Internet Security 2004 for just over a week now and absolutely nothing has got past.

Make sure you clean your system with whatever Adware/spyware/av you like first.

Oh and use a good pop-up blocker too such as the one on the Google toolbar (more effective than the one included with NIS 2004).

if avg found the viruses then its doing its job as intended and i would keep it. why change?

  gudgulf 00:56 28 Jun 2004

Don't think anyone is suggesting a change-I think frankie is looking for additional lines of defense.It is good that AVG caught the viruses,but as far as I am aware no AV program is totally effective against Worms/Trojans ,particularly new strains--Have a look at the article in the latest PC Advisor Mag. reviewing av/firewall/antispyware software.

sorry gudgulf i do agree but my comment was re: stalion`s posting above.

I also use prevx, gudgulf's link, but the log is clean.

It may be that spywareblaster,re-SANTOS7, fully enabled, is stopping most things, or I am a boring f*rt who does not visit any thing but secure sites. :-(

Apart from having AVG (free), AdAware6, S and D 1.3 and SpywareBlaster, I also set First and Third Party cookies to Allow and Block (or Prompt) respectively.

As a result, every time a website tries to post a cookie on your system a panel comes up asking if you wish to allow or refuse the request.

You can choose whether to permanently allow or block all cookies from a website; those that you trust you can allow and avoid the check in the future.

As a consequence of this extra line of defence, when I run AdAware or S and D 1.3, I only get the very occasional intruder and that's quickly despatched.

If you are using IE5 try IE6 which has much better security and privacy options.
