    I have heard alot about this program so I just want to know.
    BTW
    Is this program Anti-Malware or Anti-Trojan or both?

    and the last question
    what do you think about this Security Suite:
    NOD32 , BOClean , AVG Anti-Spyware (Paid) , WindowsXP Pro SP2 Firewall.
    ( for gaming & internet machine )

    its still worth investing in getting a firewalled router if you only using windows firewall aka one way firewall.
    ive only got one pc but i fell alot better protected with my router there.

    two things I couldn't do without, Boclean and as @lodore says a firewalled router, both essential for venturing into the big wide world _ IMHO

    I wouldn't be without BOClean either.
    It's light on resource usage and support is top-notch.

    Those apps you have listed are perfect for gaming.
    I've never tried BOClean myself (no trial around) so I can't say much about that one, but the rest is for the secure gamer.

    BOClean saved me a few times, I especially like to install alot of programs I know nothing about, BOClean stops bad stuff before you get into trouble.

    Haven't used BOclean before but i've heard great things about it. I don't believe you would need both boclean and avg as running at the same time. If thats the free avg as then that would be great for on demand, but nod32 + boclean and xp firewall would be excellent for a gaming machine. On my gaming machine all i use is avg pro, gss and windows firewall.

    Could not have said it better myself. Exactly. :thumb: :thumb:

    Also lodore has given good advice as well get a hardware firewall between you and the outside world. ;) Might as well make it a NAT Router so you will be ready for future expansion. :)

    As for what it protects against just check one of the update notices found right here at the Wilders ;)

    boclean is a nice, light program with excellent backing against malware.
    I like how boclean achieves what it does, stable, without argument.

    I have been using Bo Clean for five year's or more and have to say that is the only program that never leaves my computer. I do have to say i have never seem it in action but i like it that way.

    And another happy user here of BOClean :)
    In no way I want to run a (Windows-) computer without it.
    It is one of my most important programs.
    In case friends or family ask me to do "some" maintenance on their computer, there is one "conditio sine qua non" : they have to run BOClean!

    PS: yes, I have some other AT's too.

    Nice light, stable program, you won't even know it's there and support is second to none.The bonus , one license enables you to install on up to 5 PC.

    One final point I would make. You did ask about it's effectiveness. I would add that some new user may wonder is it working how do I know? The program is such a "silent running" app. one might wonder if it is working.

    Just stare at the little icon in your system tray from time to time for about 10 seconds if it flashes green or blue it's on the job. Also when logging in and rebooting you will get a longer scan (couple of minutes). It should not slow you down much if at all on boot up. After so many years of useage I assume to much and say wait a minute if I were a new user I would wonder about these things. Hope that helps. ;)

    Finally this is only a precaution open it up every now and then and check to make sure you are getting your updates, however unless they are being blocked the updating is reliable. :thumb:

    I can add that their support is great!
    But i must admit that it hasn't found anything on my computer. O yes, once, when i tried to install AOL Instant Messenger. AOL tried to install some spyware said BoClean. Still, i like the idea of an extra layer of protection, so BoClean stays on my machine.

    Had trialled BOClean 4.11 when my lack of knowledge kept me from understanding just what a fine program it was. Became more of a pain to this at the time "noobie" so I un-installed it. It became lost in the maze of other collected\installed\dumped programs most of us have. A couple years later I became aware of the program again and several upgrades it had gone through. Contacted PSC. Their response was prompt and positive. I received the newest vers. as of that date. A couple PCs` and multiple formats later it got lost in the shuffle again. Fast forward to today. I contacted them with all the necessary info. and with in the hour of having sent my request as to obtaining 4.22 I again was very pleased to receive the needed links for the latest ver. Although I would have totally understood if a new purchase would have been required. :thumb: :thumb: To PSC for a fine product and outstanding support. This time it will not get lost in the shuffle.

    Good support but honestly it hasn't done anything but give me 5 FPs in the last couple years which were quickly fixed.

    Necessary? No. These days AVs are targeting malware outside of viruses so the need and usefulness of BOClean is much lower than it used to be.

    Far from the truth You SHOULD run BoClean with any AV. It catches stuff the AV doesn't. Why because it catches stuff run in mem that AV mem scanners don't. In other words it catches packed stuff when it goes to run in mem.
    Don't cut Kevin shot as far as advanced knowledge when it comes to maleware. BoClean is not only a trojan tool but an over all malewar tool also, including rootkits.
    If you are going to spend your money on an app, you can not go wrong with BoClean. One of the few programs I ever bought.
