Within this last year, Ive been getting much more viruses than normal. The cause for these viruses is unknown, for i only use sites that my friends use and ones that are generally considered to be safe. Several nasty attacks later, Ive become sick of having my computer be at risk to all of the malware and want to make it completely safe. I have a firewall, a couple reputable anti-virus programs, and an okay knowledge of computers. On a sidenote, some of my friends tell me that the reason for all the viruses i get is due to the fact that my internet is plugged in directly to my modem which is plugged in directly to the computer, and they say having a router in between would help. I was also wondering if anyone can look at my HijackThis log and check if the malware i just deleted left any surprises or bits and pieces of itself in my registry. Please help!
