Hi All, I have the 2 programs mentioned on my desktop, quite happy with both. I have just purchased a laptop which I will be setting up wirelessly soon (more posts no doubt!) and wonder if anyone has an opion on which is better to use on my new laptop....or indeed if I should use both? I have paid for 3 licences for Spyware Doctor, so guess I can just download the setup file and re-enter my licence code? Any opinions / help much appreciated as this is my 1st laptop and want to get security right. Thanks.
Thanks iscanut! I will probably go the Spyware Doctor route initially then.RE Firewall, I will ensure that the windows firewall is active. I am just about to attempt to attach my new Thomson TG585V7 Router supplied by Plusnet and follow the supplied instructions. I have a WPA PSK security key, so will ensure this is entered. Don't know if the router offers a "firewall", but trust the windows one will suffice if not..
If using Vista, the windows firewall will be OK, but no more than that. Most people would still recommend a software firewall other than the windows one. There are plenty of good free ones mentioned many times on these forums. Good luck.
