Q: Anti-virus customer support

Somehow after I knew Emsisoft and Malwarebytes I find all other AV vendors' customer support lacking... but that's just me.

Preferred Solution: Anti-virus customer support

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Anti-virus customer support

That is because some of the employees involved with EAM and MBAM product development, research and technical support are well known security experts who have volunteered their personal time to assist victims of malware infection long before their program was created. They still stay personally involved with helping victims on Internet forum boards as well as provide individual support services to users of their products. This means they are personally tuned into the day to day analysis of active malware and any reported issues with their software so they are able to respond quickly to them.

I just bought a Samsung 840 EVO 120GB SSD. Now I see that I have to enable AHCI for it to work properly, but I don't find anything that says AHCI on my motherboard! Will I never be able to use my SSD?

The motherboard's south bridge is ICH7. I know it has something to do with this problem, although I am not sure.

Thanks for help!!

Hello! I want to buy a Geforce Gtx 980 4GB gddr5 for my pc but I dont know if my motherboard can support it, how can I tell? my mother board is B85-G41 PC mate>, My procesor is i7 4770 3.40GHz. RAM is 16GB 1600MHz and PSU is 500W.
 

A:Video Card Support

From the information you provided, yes the GeForce GTX 980 will work very well with your MSI B85-G41 motherboard. You may want to keep an eye on your PSU though. 500W is the minimum system power requirement (according to the Nvidia website) to run the GeFore GTX 980. If you Overclock the GPU, it may run into some issues with the draw power coming from the PSU, and could cause it to go into an overload.

I am thinking about purchasing this motherboard,
http://www.microcenter.com/product/422559/FM2A88X_Extreme6_FM2-FM2_A88X_ATX_AMD_Motherboard

But I am not sure how to tell if a video card is compatible.

Here is the card I want,
http://www.microcenter.com/product/...adeon_R7-260X_2GB_GDDR5_PCIe_30x26_Video_Card

I realize the PCIe 3.0 will fit to the motherboard, but I do not know if it will be compatible.

I do not understand the difference betweeen DDR3, DDR5 and GDDR5.

Thanks for help!
 

A:What video cards will support this?

Yes, those two items will be compatible with each other.

DDR3 & DDR5 are VRAM types and GDDR5 is a motherboard RAM identification.

For the future, you can go >>here<< and all your parts to see if there will be any issues with compatibility.

But keep in mind that there can be other compatibility issues such as the graphics card being too long to fit in the case.

My keyboard acting weird in past few days. if I click r, it will go in RUN application, if I click L, It will logout the account, etc. I tried many anti malware like unhackme, Malware Bytes, Adware Cleaner, JKT, TDSS Killer and my Anti virus is Avira. I even tried ESET NOD. All was updated.

I tried 2 new keyboards and still acting weird.

Lastly. I Reformat my PC twice and the virus that modified my keyboard was still there.

Help me. Thank you.

I doubt it was a virus, it sounds more like an incorrect setting in your keyboard settings.
What Operating System are you using & the name/model# of your keyboard. The more info you have, the easier it'll be to fix it.

Recently sound has not been coming through my speakers, so I tried to plug in headphones and headset but no further luck. I then went into control panel then sound and check the settings on my playback and nothing was touched or muted etc. I then went to the Speakers and Headphones in sound right clicked and pressed test and it said "The device is being used by another application. Please close any devices that are playing through this device." but no other applications that I could find that would be using it. My prediction is that having no internet protection for a while and downloading off the internet has caused a virus to cause my audio to become mute, if this is so how would I be able to find this application causing it. AVG isnt picking it up.
 

A:No sound caused by a Virus/Program?

I have a Dell Studio 1558 with an Intel Core i3 CPU and a 64-bit operating system, and I'm wondering if it will support an nvidia gtx 770 graphics card.

A:Dual AMD W7000 for 8 monitors - No support from AMD

Ok so if I am reading correctly this is the card you purchased correct?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814195118

Now then, you have two of these running in one machine im assuming X-Fired together so you can output on 8 displays. So the way im reading this (please correct my if im wrong) you have 8 display port adapters going to 8 different monitors (Display port to HDMI, DVI, or what?).

So here are my questions:
Which monitors have dropped off (Which card or both and which ports)?
Do you have the latest Catalyst for the Workstation cards running?
What version of windows are you running?

Here's a couple of quick things you can do to try and get all 8 working and ill see if I can't figure out the issue with you:

Try disabling eyefinity and running every monitor as an independent display.
Try rebuilding eyefinity in the control center and see if it detects all 8 monitors

One thing is that display port is designed to hold more than one monitor per port, im guessing you are using the DVI connectors since they came with it. My advice would be instead of using every port on each card, buy some of the dual display port adapters and use only the top card to run eyefinity, using 2 cards for multiple displays tends to run into issues at times especially when connecting such an extreme amount of monitors.

A:No audio at all from computer/headset/microphone after having computer cleaned of virus

Go to your computer manufacturers website, go to the support/download/driver page.

Select which operating system you have.

Go to the audio section, and download the file , run the EXE, restart your machine and sound should work.

It's probably a driver issue..

A:Which Graphics Card would my PC (support) be able to handle?

Upgrading from a GTX 260, I'm not sure I would select a 660 or 760. Unless I was going for DirectX 11 capability. The 670 requires a 500W power supply and the 770 requires a 600W power supply. So while DirectX 11 would be an upgrade, if you are wanting a large performance increase, you will need a larger power supply than 460W. Judging by the dimensions of the GTX 260, I would say the longer graphics cards (11 inches) would physically fit. Speaking of the GTX 260, nVidia specifies a 500W is required. I know the specifications allow for headroom, so it is your call whether you want to risk a card that calls for 500W.

So, I recently bought an Asus UX31a running windows 8(in may) and it was working perfectly until a couple months ago. The only browser that works is internet explorer, which is disgusting (I miss Google Chrome) and several programs such as Adobe reader, Google drive, steam and visual studio either lag for about 5 mins each whenever I want to use them (or click something in them), or I have to close them with the task manager because they aren't responding...(This includes when I want to open pdf documents in internet explorer.

I've run several virus checks with ESET smart security which hasn't ever found any viruses...

It would be a great help if anybody could help me find what the problem is.
 

A:Multiple programs are stopping to work, also, I don't appear to have had or ever have a virus.

Try using a new Windows Restore point. This may not work because of "it was working perfectly until a couple months ago"... It is most likely caused from a stubborn malware infection other than a virus

A:Asus anti-surge is triggered to protect computer from unstable power supply

SURGE is normally associated with an increase in line voltage and that can be deadly to the PS and other components.

A DROP-OUT is when A/C voltage goes below minimum and this can effect the system too.

If power is poorly regulated (ie it fluctuates periodically), I would get a UPS to condition the power better. I have two: one for the computer equipment and another for my large LED tv.

You can get a cheap multi-meter to measure and monitor the voltage visually and then when you get the error, glance to confirm - - is it hi or low?

Personally, with only 400w PSU and your gaming environment, I would suspect you are stressing the PSU to its limit when gaming.

Hello. I have a couple hard drives that my uncle was using previously, but he was recently hacked and got a really elusive virus on all of them. I have a USB hard disk adapter to connect to the hard drives externally, but if I connect any one of these hard drives to Windows, I risk picking up the virus automatically. I do have Ubuntu, but I am having trouble getting to the information on the other partitions.
How do I prevent Windows from automatically reading and executing infectious programs when I insert removable media?
 

A:Need to get into hard disk, but risk picking up a virus

Well, go into Windows and set your antivirus to automatically scan external drives. Make sure you turn off the external drive via a power button or just the power plug. Keep the USB in the PC, and then power on the external drive. The antivirus should automatically scan it.

I was going to go for this Seagate 500GB ext. hd but then saw this one for $10 more it has 1TB of space and (according to the customer reviews) has a standard USB 3 cable. I found the same model on bestdirect for less. I have ordered from Memory Express who do price beats but they told me the product is discontinued, probably because of the new Go Flux line. Is this true and does it matter? The person at Memory Express directed me towards another Seagate hd of a different model. I checked out the reviews on newegg and it has 3 stars and says they have discontinued it.

How important is it to get a non-discontinued product (and why is there a discrepancy between retailers as to what's discontinued?) and how important are the customer reviews?

Well, as you know, the native resolution is 1920 X 1080. All the other details as to maximum should be on the HP site. What you list is for HP Canada. Pay close attention to contrast ratios as well.
The video card goes to 2040 X 1536, but I would never depend on a used graphics card to do what you want at those resolutions.

Does anyone have any experience dealing with ASUS customer support? I've got a P8P67 LE that won't post (it's also got the faulty 3GB SATA Intel bug and is eligible for the recall.)

Problem is, I can't get ahold of ASUS at all. I've filled out their online form for the recall using the mobo serial number, but when I try to look up the status on their status page it tells me my serial number/email is invalid. I can't register again because i'm already in the system. So I filled out a customer service request 10 days ago and haven't heard back. When I call I've been transferred around, disconnected and left messages that haven't been returned.

Anyone have any advice on how to get ahold of them? I've got a dead board, eligible for recall, and it's still under warranty.

In the nVidia control panel I've noticed 2 different AA settings. There is the normal option then transparency AA. I'm almost certain transparency AA is SSAA, which, as I understand it, is rendering a larger image and shrinking it down opposed to CSAA and MSAA that only select edges.

Just for fun I turned on 32X CSAA and 8X SSAA and loaded up crysis 1.
The question:
When using 32X CSAA with 8XSSAA is that effectively 256X AA?

Transparency AA can be applied to SuperSampling (TrSSAA) or MultiSampling (TrMSAA)

Your understanding of Super Sampling is correct. It increases the natural resolution by 2 or 4 times the original for the whole screen (hence Full Screen AA or FSAA) and is then down sampled. MSAA is basically as you pointed out, polygon edge AA, while Coverage Sample AA (CSAA) is basically extends MSAA with less sampling of shaders and textures while applying coverage samples to polygons (at a higher resolution) to sample the whole rendered image.

Transparency AA detects transparent/opaque textures and re-samples those over the chosen AA (SSAA/MSAA) used.

Just for fun....
If you use Nvidia Inspector you can also choose Sparse Grid Super Sampling AA (SGSSAA) on enthusiast grade cards (the only ones that will handle the setting more often than not). SGSSAA renders the whole image/scene with Super Sampling but with a lower number of samples. Not all games support SGSSAA as it can conflict with some post processing effects. You may also want to effect a negative LOD (quick instructional here)

Nope, thats just wishful thinking.
Here's a chart with some of the more readily applied AA modes...

The columns are set out in order of computational complexity. Shaders being the most intensive, coverage being the least.

Is this a small form factor or a regular width case? It appears that you need an AGP compatible card but the form factor of the case will make a difference in the card you can get. Also, you might need to upgrade the power supply to match the graphics card but that depends on which card you get.

A:Will my E6700 mobo support the new E6700

More than likely not. Most board that were born it the 65nm process era, will not support the newer 45nm CPU. In many cases, newer boards intended for 45nm CPUs are backwards compatible with the older chips, but I know that doesn't help you.

The E6700 (Pent) is a very new offering. It usually won't even run in boards that accept the E6300 & E6500 "Pentium Dual Core", (the new 45nm CPUs), without a BIOS update.

Here's the CPU support page for your board, and no's the answer; http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSit...x?detailid=386&CategoryID=1&MenuID=69&LanID=2

the board's CPU compatibility doesn't even extend to the E6x20 series of C2D. These were the 1333 FSB models.

Is there a specific component on that motherboard that you're having problems with? I can't imagine that the motherboard is not "compatible" with linux - in fact, I've found threads with people using Ubuntu with that mobo. I also find it odd that you'd have a Windows Vista issue with that mobo since most of the users I see online who use it are running Vista or 7 64-bit. Perhaps you have a faulty motherboard and it's not a problem with the model itself.

A:No IPv6 support on new belkin routers

Well time to look at the Cisco Linksys E3000 instead. As that's where I headed for. Why over the Easter Weekend I was helping my brother-in-law setup his free Cisco Linksys 802.1n from Cox Communcations. He and I have Cox both have the same plan. But I didn't see what the fact that his wireless 802.11n downloads was very quick. Even though be both have Power Boost, his E2000 is quicker than Belkin N+. Wow! An on the Gizmo site online there is a short review on E3000 in 802.11n mode and it's quick. There is EnGenius ESR9850 that's suppose to be showing 700mbps on LAN to WAN and WAN to LAN on wired connections where P2P is showing 19,721 max connections instead of the norm 200 max simulations connections. As 802.11n is over 100mbps too.This is 10/100/1000mbps the NPU is all-in-one SOC meaning the wireless chipset is integrated into the chip. NPU speed is 384MHz and the onboard RAM is 32MB. Online this wireless 802.11n router is only $49 to $59 on some sites. Belkin N+ V2 uses this setup, but looks like some other companies have spiked up the firmware or hardware to get max connections speeds.

After two years of owning first Belkin N+ it has served me very well. But like all PCB wireless routers they tend to degrade and start acting up after heavy duty usage like I have place this router though. Plus these newer routers seem to have full speed ahead not like 2008, 2009 where they seem to be half speed. 2010 wireless routers not all but those I've mentions are set to the max instead of mid-way! Gig connection is suppose to be 600-700mbps not 100-200mbps.

Hi,

I'm going to buy a GTX8800 for my pc, but before that I will need to upgrade my PSU because it has only 250W ( i-cute china brand ), it definetly not sufficient to run GTX 8800. I have found this PSU on ebay

cgi.ebay. co. uk /NEW-650-w-SATA-PC-PSU-POWER-SUPPLY-SILENT-120mm-FAN_W0QQitemZ140332178693QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_PowerSupplies_EH?hash=item20ac731d05

I'm not sure does it fit for my new video card or not.

Experts please help me !!
 

A:Question: Which PSU to support GTX8800? PSU upgrading

You're better off getting a branded PSU from Corsair, OCZ, etc. I doubt that one from eBay will actually output 650W...
Also is the 8800 GTX even in production any more? Even if it is you're better off spending your money on a Radeon 5750 or something, which would probably cost about the same.

I ran the windows 7 upgrade advisor on my computer and it indicated that my current graphics adapter won't support the windows aero.is there an upgrade for this I have a geforce 8500gt 512mb card with v.191.07 drivers installed?who do I get the updates from nvidia or microsoft?
 

A:Windows are support?

If you are running a Windows XP 64 bit, you must get Windows 7 64 bit. 32 bit Windows XP needs 32 bit Windows 7. Don't worry about the geforce 8500gt now. Install Windows 7 and the required video driver updates will take care of the issue

I have a small 750VA UPS which i use to safely shut down computer.The backup is about 5-8 minutes.We are having power shortage and thinking of battery backup but not much cash for inverters.My question is that do my UPS support those large battery(cars and bigger one like 120amp etc,don't have knowledge sorry).How much amp of battery do my UPS support?I calculated my computers' power consumption and it's around 230watt(with 9800GT,not sure)+36Watt monitor.So can i only get battery or my UPS too weak and need inverter?
 

A:Battery support for 750VA UPS

As long as it is 12V DC you can use any battery you want. There are a few things online about using a car battery for the battery backup. You may want to use a 'deep cycle' marine battery (although I don't know the availability of marine batteries in Nepal). There are probably other 'deep cycle' batteries other than marine.. Anyway, unless it is in a pretty well ventilated place you'll want to avoid unsealed batteries, which include most car batteries, because of hydrogen gas buildup (and perhaps H2S).

Depending on the battery you may (probably will) lose the ability to correctly monitor how much life you have left in the battery when running the electronics.

Not my problem, but one I have noticed many, many times lately on these pages. So many people report 'unable to boot from install CD' or DVD, despite having the boot order correct. Can some experienced repair technician throw light on what is going on - are CD/DVD devices becoming quite quickly unable to support booting?

And what may be the cause? Is there some change in recent motherboards, is XP/Vista/Win7 sending out updates which interfere with motherboard drivers? Do devices simply fail quite quicky these days? .... or what?
 

A:Do many CD/DVD drives fail to support boot these days?

No

Here's what the issues have been:

Written disc (copied) that is not being picked up by the standard laptop CD/DVD Drive (normal I find)
Faulty CD/DVD Drive, that can read in Windows, but cannot boot BootCDs (common I find)
Users not selecting either "press any key to boot from CD" or not selecting the Fn key that changes to CD boot (not exactly Bios config)
Scratched or dirty discs (and CD/DVD Drives)
Incorrect jumper setting (or cabling) on older ATA (IDE Connected) CD/DVD Drives
There may be a whole range of others (and a comprehensive list) listed on other sites of possible issues

BUT: When the computer was bought (brand new) it booted from the CD/DVD Drive (even new and old computers)
Therefore something (as above) has changed since, ie its not MS updates or firmware drivers, or anything like that. Although I agree that parts don't last as long as they did in the past, ie most 486 computers still work, ironically

I have a Shuttle SN78SH7 with the latest SN78S10Y BIOS. I had been using a wired USB KB, which works fine. I recently switched to a wireless KB, but it does not work during POST or the grub2 menu. It works fine though once the OS boots up.

I understand I should try enabling "Legacy USB support" in the BIOS, but I can't find that in the menu. Can someone point me to the right setting?

-Thanks, zog

heya guys, I'm half way through building my new system I currently have the Asrock M3A790GXH/128M motherboard and i am looking to buy the Athlon II quad core 620 as I can get it pretty cheap.

My question is on the asrock site it says "Support for Socket AM3 processors: AMD Phenom? II X4 / X3 (except 920 / 940) and Athlon II X4 / X3 / X2 processors"

However in the cpu support list it says that it does support it?

Can any one clear this up for me?

The asrock K10nSLI board says it does not support the athlon 620 on its current bios, however this is not true.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :slurp:

Yes, reinstall Windows, and be sure to download and install all the Microsoft Updates after the OS install is complete. If you have trouble installing Windows, you could have a hardware problem with the power supply, memory or the hard drive itself.

while certainly there have been keypress viri it is not likely. I think you just need to replace the keyboard.

BUT before you do so, boot into safe mode command line. If the key is still repeating in DOS - it's the keyboard.

I'm sure they will run fine if the OS supports it. Vista won't run some older games but those are going back at least 6 years.

Link DGL- - Internet works gaming doesn t DGL-4500 = Anti-Gaming? work nearly as well as before - All settings on factory default with latest firmware Also before anybody asks yes I have to have a wireless router because even though I use a desktop my sister has a notebook here that she uses A few days ago my Linksys BEFW S Version wireless router began to do what nearly all Linksys routers are known to do and began to drop my internet connection every fifteen to twenty minutes After having done everything I could possibly find on it to try and fix it still to no avail I began to look at other routers to buy Being big into gaming I play in multiple leagues for Counter-Strike Source and Call of Duty I began to look for something that would last me for a long time and wouldn t interfere with online play Thanks to Best Buy the model of router I wanted wasn t available and so one thing led to another and I ended up buying the D Link DGL- wireless router I set everything up with the router turned my computer back on used the quick-connection disk to get the router set up and was able to get on the internet without any problems My internet connection dropped once and so I installed the v firmware which caused all connection drops to cease Once that was all done I began to configure the security settings all of which were merely standard configurations which I had on my old Linksys router Everything seemed fine until I tried to start up Call of Duty This game before would always start up in less than five seconds usually almost instantly and so when I saw that it was taking about as long as Mass Effect to start up I began to feel something was wrong I thought it could have been my firewall permissions and so I checked it made sure the game and ports were allowed and tried it again The same exact thing happened So I just waited for about two or three minutes and the game eventually started up just for me to find a blank server list I knew that this wasn t right Making sure it wasn t just CoD that was the problem I jumped into Counter-Strike and while the servers came up I was unable to join them So I did a factory default on the router and only put on an admin password leaving everything else the same Call of Duty still takes forever to load but I can at least join the servers though I am getting occasional lag ping not fps in some servers I used to play in though I had never lagged in them before The only thing that has changed between then and now is the router and I have tried starting the game up with Gamefuel turned both on and off so I know that isn t the problem So basically my question is what can I do in order to make the settings back to the way they were before back when I didn t get any lag and back when Call of Duty started up in an instant nbsp

Hi!

My friend just built a computer and now he got realy lucky. He got a virus from another computer in their network and now when we try to install windows and/or just boot from something else than the normal hdd it just shuts down all the USB ports.

When we use the antivir it says it deletes the virus but then after reboot it's there again :/


So what to do??
 

A:Crappy virus shuts down USB

If you are trying to reinstall Windows, using the OEM cdrom should do the trick and wipe the hard drive clean. If you have identified the name of the virus, you could try looking for additional information online or in a virus database affiliated with the anti-virus program you are using.

A:Would my system support a Radeon 4850 512mb

No. Your PSU doesn't supply enough power for the card to run properly in your system.

Hello, i have an ECS P4IBAS Motherboard and was wondering if it can support a 160GB hard drive. The bios is Award Modular BIOS 6.00PG v1.1 and the motherboard has the Intel 845 Chipset. I currently have an 80gb hard drive which is about to fail (it has a very high reallocated sector count) and i really want to get a bigger hard drive as 80gb isnt enough for me anymore. The year of my bios is 2001. So will this motherboard support a 160GB hard drive without having to flash my bios?

Thanks, Nissanman.
 

A:Hard Drive Support For ECS P4IBAS Motherboard?

Yes, depending on the OS. The Award BIOS will handle it. But, unless you use XP Service Pack 2 or 3, your maximum size per partition is 132 gb before formatting or 128, or so, after formatting.
Best thing to do is format it with whatever OS you have, then extend the partition with a partition manager such as PartIt, Norton Ghost, Acronis, or the like.

Hi I m new to the forum and was wondering if some of you might want to help Protection Novice Needs Virus help me decide on how to protect the new Virus Protection Novice Needs help laptop I want to purchase I Virus Protection Novice Needs help m Virus Protection Novice Needs help not really sure what makes a good virus protection or even what that means Basically I want my computer to be fully protected from everything and anything that could hurt it My new laptop will have Vista on it and I don t think the security that Vista employs is good enough I will be using the notebook wirelessly and I want to protect it from all of the evil internet things that ould touch it too What s some advice on Computer protection from viruses spy-ware ad-aware Trojans etc and any good programs that will work with Vista and really protect my computer If anyone wants to explain how virus ad-aware spy-ware trojan protection works I d be greatly appreciative I m looking into Norton Bit-Defender and McCaffee If anyone wants to weigh in on the pros and cons of those feel free Thanks to any who help me out nbsp

A:Virus Protection Novice Needs help

Firstly Norton: No!
Norton Antivirus works well, but when (and I say when!) it corrupts it usually takes Windows with it!

Antivirus software is used to defend your computer from Virus, only. But many AntiVius softwares are extending their protection to Spyware/Trojans and more protection options.
The new AVG Free Antivirus is an excellent example of this





Basically I want my computer to be fully protected from everything and anything that could hurt it.Click to expand...

Basically not possible

Yes you can get the Best AntiVirus product, and have it fully updated and running resident protection (live protection on Saving, Moving files; Email etc) But this is how it actually works (Note many users find this next part hard to understand)

-> A user, fully protected with the best most up to date Antivirus (or Spyware/Trojan/Malware/Rootkit and more) is Not protected from any new Virus (or malware) that has just been released.
When a new virus is found by any user (and then reported) all Antivirus companies, firstly confirm it is a Virus. And then update all their definitions (new virus alert protection) And then release the new protection definition (as an automatic download to all users) And this happens daily!

Therefore, anyone can still get a Virus, whilst having the best updated AntiVirus protection in the world.

To avoid this issue, most users employ a good Firewall
Firewall programs can either be bundled in a new Internet Security software, or they can be bought (there are many excellent free ones too) seperately.
Firewalls inform the user that either a new file is being installed in your computer, externally, or basically anything externally (including hacking from external users) to your computer. Also they protect your computer from sending anything out as well, from your computer (ie private files, credit card info etc)
Note: Your firewall will popup and inform you of this activity, but you alone must decide if you want to accept any of this internal/external communication.

So now you require a good AntiVirus product and a good firewall.

But the Spyware (and all other Malware) programs (including the ones inside Internet Security software) Do Not protect you from all of these nasties.
I know, I know!
Presently not one Spyware product anywhere, does not protect any user from every issue.
Why? Mainly because each of these Spyware programs are individualized (or specialized) to certain types of Spyware (ie Trojans, and lots more)

So now what do you use? - Many Spyware programs all running at the same time! and a good firewall, that you have to decide on what's ok! And an AntiVirus software that doesn't pick up the absolute latest virus! ?

Here's what you do:

Get a good free Antivirus and Firewall and a few different Spyware programs (why pay?) and run scans regularly (especially after new updates are released - Note: this regularly can be once a month, corporates usually do this at least once a week, and most do it never!)

Or do as most do, and worry only when a Virus or Spyware is found (of course make regular backups of your important data)

You are not protected
