Hello all,

this is my first post here, so bear with me, please.

I was on another site for help in getting rid of spyware, and viruses, and did all steps required and was told that my HJT log was clean.

So here is my question, I really want to get back to normal, such as online banking, buying on line, but I cant stop thinking that there is still something in my computer that will send my personal info to someone. Although I m sure no one can guarantee 100% free of spyware, viruses and such, but if my HJT is clean and I run regular scans with the programs I have installed on my computer, can I assume, all is well????

I changed my browser from IE to Firefox, because i've been told that it is a safer browser.

I was reading a post here "topic 1629" and there is a section about making your IE more secure, is there a way of doing this with Firefox??

this is what my machine is currently running:
Windows XP SP2
Firefox 2
AVG Spyware
Avast Anti Virus
Ad Aware anti spyware
Spybot S&D
Zone Alarm

Thanks in advance,

Ray

PS: I am also going to add Spyware Blaster to my security items

Basicly you are well protected with these security measures you took. You might want to add Spywareblaster and download the MVPS hostfile which keeps you away from bad websites. I would also add Ccleaner here and do a regular cleanup scan weekly.
