    For what you already have and since you have more than one PC and still can not figure out your setup on all of it ;) Take a look at Trojan Hunter...TDS3...BOClean.

    But I think you are well protected at this point.

    dear subratam

    its good that u have a list of all these anti trojan and anti hacking and anti virus software installed but its always sud be kept in mind that with all these security features and updated high powered kits ur system can reach a threash hold point and there will be greater risk of crashing, irrespective of which ever anti crash softwares u have, and ur vulnerability from ur over security is more than any trojan or virus or hacker.

    Change your brower to one of the mozilla family or any other none IE if u havent. U may also try host files if u dont have any, i use IE-SPYAD, Spy bots and one other i carnt remember (links in my signature). F-Prot for dos is also good as a back up AV and its free (http://www.f-prot.com/download/home_user/).

    You also might want to try Sysinternals Process Exporer, not exactly a security program, but it helps sometimes when you expect Adare/Spyware/Trojan, you can download it, along with a host of other utilitys at www.sysinternals.com - Also, you might try System Safety monitor (I dont know the hompegae, but I'm getting ready to re-download it, later, but you can download it at www.webattack.com), and, 15 to 16 hrs a day? thats a LONG time to be online :doubt:

    Hello subratam

    How about a registry protector such as RegistryProt and an anti-worm program such as Wormguard? Even though some programs you have may catch some worms it is better to have a dedicated anti-worm program that has proven itself capable of the function. These take up so little system resources that they are both worth the download.

    Best wishes.

    An encryption progam might also help. It's not a must for some peopler but it's always good to have one. :)
