I came across this forum after having problems with my computer, suspected virus/malware. I know its not the place to post about that so I won't :-) But from what I have read of the way others have been helped, I'd like to say thank you in advance! People have written that helping others solve virus/malware problems is addictive , and all I can say is, I am glad it is so!

One quick question regarding AV software (and I hope this is appropriate here). I was running trend micro, and it didn't pick up some/a virus/es I had in december, and also it didn't notify me when I had picked up something (and probably inadvertantly transmitted to) some websites I run, so after that happened (the websites being compromised, which I am in the process of trying to sort out, tedious tedious!), I decided to bite the bullet and try sophos (currently on a trial). I have read great stuff about them, and I am impressed so far, though my computer is still not quite right. What are some 'expert' thoughts on them?

Again, thank you everyone here!
