    I have I.E. & Outlook Express & Firefox & Windows Media checked. How about QT and Winamp? Windows Live Messenger? I would think so, am I right?

    Should I also be checking the applications that use the internet to check for updates? Example Garmin web updater, Spyware Blaster, Spybot, and many others.

    Hi-For messenger, see these instructions:

    The other applications should be added as web browsers. However, the http filter scans traffic using an internal proxy-so one thing I should add is that if one of your applications has problems connecting through the proxy, I would not add it as a web browser and let the real-time scanner protect you.

    I have "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\ecls.exe" /adv-heur /adware /arch /auto /boots /files /mail /no-log-all /pattern /quarantine /rtp /sfx /subdir /unsafe /unwanted

    as instructed in https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=206809

    What I'm not sure about is if the above will notify me of an unsafe/virus in a file transfer or would it just quarantine it and ask me what I want it to do?
    I don't understand command switches. I just copied and paste. :)

    Thank you for your reply.
