    New setup--now with Linksys wireless router with McAfee Internet Security 2008 on both computers. Only other protection is an occasional SAS Free scan.

    I noticed that a huge amount of people are using a program called BoClean. I see this name everywhere. If it continues, I'll see this name in my soup and nightmares... What's so special about this tool? I'm far from being a fan of Comodo "only work for the few" freewares but is this program really a must?

    BOClean is an anti-trojan that was once pay software. Since Comodo bought it and made it free, many people have started using it.

    Like any other program, some people may find it useful while others may not.
