    I have since changed my position on what security application I would use since my original post on April 20th, I have been using NOD32 since June 4th. That's it.

    As of yesterday, my security application has changed again, I now use Dr.Web antivirus instead of Nod32.

    Does hardware count? A firewall, most definitely. First line of defence. An AV, AS or AT are not going to do much good if you've been hacked. Besides, you can remove that stuff manually. It's a pita, but possible. :D

    Prevx1 - Community Intrusion Prevention System
    Prevention is better than Removal.

    As per the infinite wisdom of ErikAlbert.... my vote goes to Prevx1 with SSM as a very close second.

    To be real here I would probably have to choose AVG's Anti-Spyware program. As it Improves I believe for it to be awesome!

    Only one then it would be NOD32, combined with the NAT router I would be fairly comfortable,

    This is deadly serious. Think about it. You can run a protected environment where you create a snapshot of your operating envorinment then when you re-boot you simply revert to the previous state and voila! All viruses and hacker exploits are now gone. you just re enable a fresh snapshot and keep going. If anything I have ever seen that can as "A single" Application provide the perfect protection then it has to be a virtual machine....

    Simply put!! it works and oh... by the way.... it's free!!! (http://www.vmware.com)

    It's a thing of beauty!
