its not bad, though i preferred the old Ants tool, which although in German had some nifty features bolted on (i vaguely remember a port scanner / checker and some strange red flashing button that mysteriously didnt seem to do anything!)

Tried it, didn't like it but can't remember why.

You might want to try Ewido security.
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

and X-Cleaner
http://www.xblock.com/download-freeware.shtml

and definitely install spyware blaster
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

I'd also suggest Winpatrol and CCleaner. There are others, but I won't list them all here unless you're interested. I have 12 security programs installed and apparently I'm still lacking. :thumbsup:

aČFree comes highly recommended by many on this site. Please visit this link. :thumbsup:

Freeware replacements for common commercial apps

I use it. And I love it. Very user friendly. All in all very worthwhile to have. :flowers:

~ Emisoft~ a-squared (aČ) is a complementary product to antivirus software and desktop firewalls on MS Windows computers. Antivirus software specializes in detecting classic viruses. Many available products have weaknesses in detecting other malicious software (Malware) like Trojans, Dialers, Worms and Spyware (Adware). aČ fills the gap that malware writers exploit.



I can not comment on X-Cleaner or Ewido Security. Having never used them.

Spywareblaster is fantastic!
