Pest Patrol claims to protect against trojans & worms as well as lots of privacy stuff. I am still testing PP. So far everything about it looks very well designed and executed. Another big plus for me [because my box is old & slow] is that PP uses a delightfully small % of system resources. PP has an excellent site. Good FAQ. A lively forum. Lots of pluses. Being as I am such a newbie, I don't want to get taken in by PP's pretty face and *friendliness* What I am most concerned about is WHETHER OR NOT PP's designers expended too much effort on keeping toy poodles from crapping on my lawn [that is, "protecting privacy"] ...and not enough time on keeping me safe from the rabid Rottweiler that's roaming my neighborhood [that is, "protecting against trojans, worms, et alia"]. It's also what bothers me about PP's otherwise excellent forum. Namely, most of the raves from happy customers have to do with the poodles. There's hardly a comment about the rabid Rottweiler. Question: Will PP do an *adequate* AT job? [Adequate is all I need.] Plus any other comments and/or advice would be greatly appreciated. Shaloha.... Bellgamin ~~~~~ I have the Midas touch.
