What other security are you running? Firewall? Anti-spyware? Maybe a HJT log would give Pancake (our resident expert) something to do. If you need help with that, please ask.


It was Kaspersky. Since than I have instaled spybot, spywareguard and spyblaster.
I'ii do a HJT scan and post the log.
Thanks

Every person on the net will have a different opinion, on this.

I use the freebie Avira Antivir and it's never, ever let me down.

I used to use AVG, until their servers went AWOL, a while back.

I MUCH prefer Avira.

"Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic" is the freebie.

I've been running AVG free edition for sometine and its never reported anything. I did an online scan and it reported an infection which AVG still has not picked up.
Which is the better AV software?
