    Hello,
    I need advice from the expert in security.
    I just want to know if I should consider to install Worm Guard on my PC.
    Right now I have ZA Pro, NOD32, Ad-Aware Pro and TrojanHunter.
    Thanks for your help.

    I am not the expert you seek, but I can see no harm in installing Wormguard, of course the more security software we run in theory the better protected we are.

    Your current setup has many bases covered, its not going to hurt having Wormguard, but you need to ask yourself if you really need it.

    It wont hurt, can't say it will help either, just make sure your PC can handle the load.

    Hello Antarctica

    Proper defences require proper software in place. Suggested is

    A good firewall - such as Outpost: http://www.agnitum.com/products/outpost/

    A good anti-virus program - such as NOD32:

    A good anti-trojan program - such as TDS:

    A good anti-worm program - such as WormGuard:
    http://wormguard.diamondcs.com.au/

    A good anti-spy program - such as SpywareBlaster:
    http://www.wilderssecurity.net/spywareblaster.html

    An anti-spy tool (also functions as a browser anti-hijacker program) - such as Spybot S&D:

    Some you may have already. If you prefer other choices for the programs then alright but each categorie does something the others do not. A great anti-virus program does not necessarily catch all trojans; a great browser protection program most likely will not catch worms. A layered protection scheme is best to be protected. Hopefully this will not bury you in too much information. If you have any questions or need any kind of help at all you can come here to Wilders and the folks in the know will be happy to help.

    Best wishes.
