I had a pretty nasty virus awhile back and ended up doing a reformat/reinstall. It really surprised me to get a virus since I'd like to think I'm pretty smart about these things, keep everything up to date and had protection software installed (which never even found the virus, btw).

I am now using Firefox instead of IE. I just got a notice that my Trend Micro PC-cillan subscription is about to expire. since that service didn't really protect me from the last one, I'm not too likely to renew. Can you please recommend an alternative?


EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum

There is a list of resources in the AV, Firewall and Privacy section that is fairly complete, and will eliminate googling av for results. Another good list can be found at gizmo's freeware the address is techsupportalert dot com. I have been using avast home free for over 2 years no major problems.

Good Luck
Dan
