Without explaining myself further, unless called upon to do so, . . I would like to ask of you who have sufficient experience with the programs that protect most of us from those everyday bad things that happen to our computers, a couple questions.

Concerning HJT logs, prior to logging into the forum there are a battery of malware and ant-virus programs to advised to use, after they serve their purpose what to do with them, I guess they are to be disabled and stored on the PC for the next time OK Correct ?

What program would you suggest be kept running to protect my PC, I want one that is going to allow me to use my internet browser without to much hassle ?

Will appreciate your feedback<

Hi.

Browsing habit does really play a great role in keeping your computer clean. Being conscious on what sites you are navigating.

I use Sandboxie when testing some " UNTRUSTED SITES".

Thanks Mas Poqi,

I have irregular surfing habits, since I do research and often enter sites for information, and therefore most are new sites, but I have decided to start protecting myself the best way I can,
today I went to McAfee and wound up having my charge card number in the hands of someone who I chose to speak to to investigate what was going on, in India ? he had something to do with Real Play or Peal Player, he inadvertently reconnected me to someone in the U.SA. after I became rather adamant, who found the 14 day free trial that wasn't actively charged yet, and supposedly deleted it. Of course this is an indirect example of some of the daily occurrences on the internet.

This I think occurred because if you do not make a purchase outright your free trial goes to a third party, therefore they have the opportunity to swing you around a little.

Man I really am hoping that I don't have some bugger using my sisters credit card, because they have my e-mail address.

Anyway, thanks again, I'll look into it.
