    Well, Ive used Norton products and ad-aware for years and it works great for me, it detects virus on my computer and deletes it. Ive had no problem and no hassle with them yet.
    Anyone got other Virus removing program suggestions?
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    The only thing I really like(d) about Norton is how thorough it is. It checks everything. McAfee is more of quick scan program, that indeed does pick up the nasties but doesn't do the job I would prefer as Norton does.

    For firewalls- Black Ice, McAffee, or Zone Alarm which happens to have a freeware version of its firewall.

    Norton is a system hog and it did create issues for me.

    For antivirus- VCatch heuristics, McAfee or Sophos, and AVG (free version of that available). You can always run online scans at sites such as trend micro or panda though. Remembering to do so would become bothersome.

    As far as AdAware... it's ok. I prefer SpyBot Search and Destroy (free)combined with Pest Patrol. But if you really removed 310 ickies after you ran AdAware, I would strongly suggest you download a winsock repair tool specific to your opperating system and save it to your desktop before you even attempt to run one of those programs in the event you have an ickie that replaced strings. Trust me on this one if you want to ever connect to the Internet again in the near future. Do you go to sites such as KaZaA, Morpheus, or BearShare?

    Why don't you consider getting a download manager that runs in the back ground while you are surfing the net. A lousy download manager saved my rear a few times when I was on the Internet just poking around here and there over the past few years.

    I am no computer geek. A friend of mine set me up and it works. All software is configured properly and is compatible.
