I just cleaned up my mother's computer this weekend. It wasn't infected or anything like that, but I would simply feel better knowing that she had a decent security suite. I have PC Cillin Internet security on her sytem right now simply because it is low maintenance. It's not gonna give her a ton of popups and with her surfing habits, should be enough to stop the viruses. But spyware is a different issue. The thing is, she isn't going to use the scanning aspect any software. And I also don't want her calling me every 5 minutes about a popup. So I want something to immunize her system with some active protection. I'm thinking that I will use Spyware Blaster to immunize and Spyware Terninator (with the HIPS turned off) for Active Protection. Can anyone attest to how good Spyware Terminators active protection is? Also, with it's HIPS turned off, is it relatively transparent?
