    I've deleted them with Mcafee but how do I secure my browser to prevent trojan droppers? I autosurf to get a little extra money coming in and alot of these sites I am expecting drop junk on my computer, I have a strong AV with Mcafee and Look n stop but I want to maybe prevent my browser from accepting this trash.

    Any ideas?

    you might try useing
    spywareblaster
    spybot search and destroy
    ewido or a2
    microsoft antispyware
    processguard
    regdefend
    adaware se

    these would be a good start.

    Hi Simon Phoenix,

    Have you tried setting your Opera cache to Off and/or enabling Empty on exit?

    Nick S, I just did that and let's hope it helps and bigC, I have all of those programs expect for regdefend.

    I use I.E with Popupcop for my autosurfing, it's very customizable and I hope it does the job.

    Thanks
