I don't use a firewall or antivirus. I haven't used them for years.
I'm not a green horn nor am I an expert on these things. But I have had some experience with virus's and Trojans.
I may get a virus once a year. I try to be careful of where I surf.
I use Malwarebytes & Spybot faithfully. I defrag every 2 weeks.
Having said that-
I use Firefox 8 and love it. I play Pogo games and had some problems with Firefox this past summer. Pogo suggested I download and install Google Chrome so I did. I use it only for playing Pogo games.
I use Internet Explorer 8 for my employment only. The company I work for has a website and a portal I have to go into to do my reports. It's set up for IE so that's what I use.
No problems until I began using Chrome.
I'm now getting Spyware. Spybot says it from Google Chrome, fixes it and all seems well.
Twice now I have gotten the Trojan.Vundo.H. Actually I think it is 3 variations of the Vundo.
It hijacks my IE homepage.
Malwarebytes finds it, quarantines it, then I delete it a day or so later. IE runs fine once again (although I detest using it.)
How likely is it that I'm getting these Trojans through Google Chrome?
Thank you for any help you can give me.
