The best way to not get infected is dont install crap. You dont need to use any of those programs if you actually know what you're doing because you wont get infected in the first place...

This includes never using Internet Explorer. It seems like every other month theres another exploit that only requires you to visit a malformed page and BAM! your PC has bent over backwards and let something you dont want in...

I had a great quote ICQ'd to me a few days ago... something like...


We were always told that if you gave a million monkeys a million keyboards they would create the complete works of Shakespear. Now, thanks to the internet we know this to not be true.

This quote helps to explain why people still use IE.

See it all the time, someone installs something because it looked cool for one reason or another... and turns out it just malwares up their PC.

"but all I downloaded was a new cursor!"

and all the rest of it just happened to appear... right?

lol, I love it
"Science is this extraordinary transnational, transcultural, trans-everything language which is the only way to discover Truth and its regrettable that billions are still stuck in the Middle Ages believing the crap propagated by Popes and priests..."

YES I LOVE YOU!! I LOOOOOOOOVE YOU! thank you so much Doc, and assman both of you have made the stupid virus go away, i also figured out, DO NOT GO TO TURBO SQUID . COM!! and the virus was a fake trojan alert. Thank you everyone!


No problem, the program is only a trial for 14 days but it is cheap, so if you can buy the program. Since installing it, my PC has never had a virus/spy-ware/malware or anything. Very good program

Gestures are the best thing since sliced bread!! I love them, it pisses me off when I finish using firefox or opera and try to do gestures in explorer, only to realise that I'm a muppet and microsoft are CENSORED e.

Well, you can downlaod what you want... Scan EVERYTHING before you open it, even if its from a site you trust... its just common sence...

Jdanswer12 may I also recommend that you uninstall Microsoft Messenger 4.7, which comes automatically with WindowsXP. It's not a required program and it is responsible for you getting a lot of the pop up ads.
Another program that I might recommend to you to use is this one:

XP-Antispy 3.95-2

With that you can do what I just mentioned above and prevent a lot of other security risks.

Ready for another one?

SpywareBlaster 3.5.1

^ Will block out a lot of the web sites out there that can be dangerous to your PCs health. Be warn, it also blocks some porn sites. Don't ask me how I know.

OK one more before I reboot:

SpyBot-Search & Destroy 1.4

Not only will that one help you find spy ware but it will also block bad sites as well.

Well I have to reboot now. The new mouse software is asking to do it, so I have to.
