    Hello, all. Currently, I am using NOD32 2.50.25 with the settings tweaked, Avast! Home Edition, Ewido, and A-Squared, coupled with the WinXP Sp2 firewall. Am I set in the internet world?:doubt:

    Hi Jevion0916, welcome to Wilders.

    You might like to take a look at the link within my signature in regards to what people use for protection against Spyware etc.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    Why are you using two antivirus programs? Nod and Avast? I'd stick with just nod32, you don't need avast.

    Firefox with the No Script extension is an important security extra (or hardenning IE's settings)....basically you want to stop driveby downloads as much as possible (a major source of infection), and this is your frontline defence against that.

    Yes I agree with Vikorr. "Enough is enough" makes IE rock hard. Get it at:

    http://www.spywarewarrior.com/uiuc/main-nf.htm

    In addition to "enough is enough" you'll get a real education from that site!

    Also worthy MVP's HOSTS, Spyblaster, IESpyad


    Take care
