For me... I use:
as my browser/popup blocker
GET FIREFOX: (click the button in my sig)
*AntiVir Personal Edition
as my virus software (DOY!)
GET ANTIVIR: www.free-av.com...
as my spyware controller
GET ADAWARE: www.lavasoftusa.com...
*As for firewall, I use the hardware firewall integrated in my router. I have no need for a software one as the hardware one seems to work well. But
if you would like a personal software firewall, I recommend the free version of Zone Labs' ZoneAlarm Personal Firewall.
GET ZONEALARM: www.zonelabs.com...
You can check HERE
to see if your router or current firewall is doing its job.
I use Windows XP Pro with SP2 and have had no cases of viruses or exceptional spyware buildup within the past 6 months.
Most people think of Windows as a bug-ridden OS and while that may be true
, it is the responsibility of the computer user to make sure
that they take care of their computer by doing periodic virus and spyware scans. It is vital in today's computing world.
I hope I was of help to not just you, Horus_Re, but to the many other users of ATS/BTS.
