Ad-Aware SE Personal works really well. But really, I've never had a virus/trojan problem that big before. o___o

I am a techy,

you can always just do a system recovery( if you don't have the disc you can call your computer company and have them sent to you...), then go to best buy get mcafee firewall and virus protection make sure to download it b4 signing on the net b/c once you log on your immediately exposed to threats, then make sure to keep your computer updated this helps keep problems at a minimum

and no I do not recommend downloading anything from the net as a first defense, b/c you won't know if your downloading another virus, or some form of adware...Unless its from a site you trust, or recommended by someone you trust and know what they are talking about...

I think every one who knows a lick about computers can agree that Norton is never the way to go either I personally think the Norton company works with hackers not against

Download AVG:

or a 30-day trial of Kapersky:

Also, use Spybot for spyware:

Do you have a firewall keelo? If not, use zonealarm or kerio

And next time use this thread(s):
Antivirus
http://www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id=1818
The Tech Thread (Computer Geek Stuff)
http://www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id=710


I second mauz's post...AVG is about the best thing that you can get to defend against viruses.

I would also recommend Spybot Search & Destroy and Lavasoft's Ad-Aware SE Personal for spyware killers...

Anonymizer is also good for a lot of things (firewalls, proxys, encriptions, ect), but it is also expensive...Still I would give it a 10/10.

You know what's the best thing to do? get 2 of each. That's what I do..Despite it's sorta overcrowding, it works cause not all scanners pick up the same thing. But, I never get a virus or hardly ever. been a few years since my last virus...
