Recently, I found a good ways to protect my computer. I used to only use anti-virus software before, but now I found use system recovery software combined with anti-virus software is really good, like dual fail-safe to protect computer. I have chosen eTrust EZ Antivirus and EAZFIX to protect my computer. How about yours? :thumbsup:

Hello iou, on my windows box i use AVG free edition, ZoneAlarm internet security suite, Spybot s&d (tea timer), windows defender, adaware personal and when i need to, filemon,packetmon and pstools. Those plus a linux box with snort,ethereal and squid for when times get tough although i run snort and ethereal on windows as well. Oh and i run rootkitrevealer every so often as well.

Hi iou , I have to say Ive never heard of EAZFIX. When i first got my PC about three years ago i was protected by a pre-installed version of Norton. When i became a little bit computer savvy i realised that me and Norton were not going to get on. Since then i have protected my PC with free software with the added safety valve of Win xp's system restore. I can honestly say my freebies have done a wonderful job protecting me ( even when being naughty and using P2P and the odd visit to adult sites ) and I've only had to use system restore once ( ironically a zone alarm update messed up my PC).

I must say i can't see me changing my protection for the foreseeable future.
