Hi everyone, this is Comajorr and I'm interested in computer security and want to be prepared if I or a friend gets a really bad spyware infection. I've only had one infection about 1 1/2 yrs ago, elite bar, when I installed some freeware. I was lucky to get rid of it using a trial of spysweeper. I'm now running spybot, adaware, edwido, windows defender, spyware blaster, AVG free anti-virus, Free Zone Alarm firewall, hosts secure and a retail version of spyware doctor linked from the spywareinfo.com site. I also browse with FireFox or IE 6 using process explorer to run it in limited user mode.

In the future I would like to learn about manual disinfection of malware and help others.

Take care,

Comajorr. :thumbsup:
