I heard this clip on CBC Ontario this morning and thought it might be interesting for if it ever happens to you. :roll: Hope it never does!

Once again, I'll chime in with my endorsement of Firefox. And if anyone is still using Internet Explorer, I implore you to switch to an alternative. You owe it to yourself.

I also use AdAware and Spybot. I used to run the Microsoft Antispyware beta. I liked it okay, but for some reason I disabled it (probably because I found it to be too "present" always there in systray, watching everything. I dislike Microsoft). A good product, though, and one I'll likely go back to when it moves out of beta.

virus and firewall I trust to ZoneAlarm Security Suite.

Oh yes a firewall. I forgot.

I use a router with my cable Internet access so no need for a firewall for any incoming threats.

As for out going stuff really I have nothing. I scan a lot with my antivirus, and the windows firewall doesn't detect anything outgoing, the free zonealarm version doesn't either. So, I hope I don't have any Trojans sending out my bank account info!

Rob, I was watching the computer show Call For Help and the host Leo recommended NOD32 from a company called Eset. There is a 30 day trial (click the NOD32 link above) or you can buy it if you like it.

(yes I just cut and pasted that from another post...I was too lazy to type it again)
