If there is a question of protection of your computer, I want to suggest www.search-and-destroy.com which is better than others and it is also FREE to download.
Thanks!

In the past 18+ years that I've been surfing the internet and God knows how many years before on BBSs, I've installed virus protection exactly twice. Both were because I was doing something naughty and both times the virus protection was essentially worthless. You may get away with 999 out of 1,000, but eventually you will get bit.

Meaning? Stay away from warez, porn & pie-in-the-sky Nigerian/E-bay scams and your computer will be as safe as a baby in a bullet-proof crib locked in a Fort Knox vault. Vampires can only come in if you invite them.

Regardless of the arguments as to the exact level, virus protection, firewall or malware scanner is going to slow your computer down to some degree at some point. The short simple being computers are still dumb, they’re just a little faster at being dumb than they were 10 years ago. You throw more/faster processors at a problem to do the same thing. That being said, you simply can’t have it both ways.

It’s a simple choice of slow and dirty or fast and clean.

JMO...your online experience may vary. GL

I have always used a combination of Spybot Search & Destroy and McAfee Antivirus and never had any problems at all on my PC. My Dell laptop seems a little harder to protect from malware.
