Are these two programs essentially the same? I have read a little on each and kind of lean towards Returnil. I am a relatively safe surfer and I turn my computer off each night. I have no problem with changing from auto update to manual update for my security programs and I expect no problems regarding my email. My operating system is Windows XP Pro. I have Sygate Pro Firewall, TrendMicro AntiSpyware, Symantic AntiVirus and SpywareBlaster as realtime protection and AVG AntiSpyware, SuperAntiSpyware and AVG AntiRootkit on demand. Additionally, A2, BitDefender, and ESS on line. I probably worry way too much. Any replies as always will be very much appreciated and I thank you in advance.
