    Now that I have made the leap to DrWeb which seems to have a very complete trojan and virus database is a dedicated trojan program recommended. Trojan hunter and BOClean seem highly recommended..... Would a second program windup as a waste of money and resources?. I do use Spysweeper for all the other nasties.

    Depends on your surfing habits.

    If you use P2P and visit other questionable websites you want as much protection as possible. Therefore, using an on-access AT monitor TOGETHER with Dr Web would be a wise choice.

    BOClean, TDS-3 and TrojanHunter are the 3 big commercial AT programs. Any of these would be a good choice but TDS-3 running in real time can be a drag unless you have a fast computer.

    You can trial these AT programs before buying except BOClean but this has a money back guarantee if you are not happy with the purchase. All have superb support.




    If you practise safe-hex, then Dr Web by itself should be sufficient, together with a good software firewall, for OUTBOUND protection. This can then be backed up with a good free on-demand AT scanner, such as Ewido.
