    Hi,

    Excellent stuff. I also wanted to mention here that these days Vundo is a major threat. I am not an expert but certainly a safe and knowledgeable user.

    I got infected by Vundo and it was particularly hard (I had never removed a process with hooks to winlogon.exe before)

    AV software (Antivir/AVG) detected it but could not remove it. Neither could Adware or Spybot or spyblaster. Ultimately it was a well written wiki article below that helped me (and pointed me to afterdawn's forums)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:HijackThis_Nerd/Vundo

    I actually think that you guys are excellent and should post more on the wiki. I have a firefox extension that along with google search results shows me a page from the wiki - that is how i was able to get rid of Vundo....

    cheers

    The only thing i'd change about this post is to go buy a router, because a router is a hardware firewall, and its one less program slowing down your connection and asking you can this access the internet. Oh yah and if you have a router turn the windows firewall on also and you will be safe you dont need zonealarm or any of that unnessessarry crap

    Quick question, is it possible to install any of the recommended spyware and ad-aware scanning applications (not the firewall and real-time protection apps) on a jump drive and run them on different machines? Kind of like making a security tool-box drive that can be used to quickly scan an infected machine. Thanks in advance.

    I've tried zonealarm, wow what a resource hog plus it made my pc run goofy, before spending a lot of time on another, any suggestions on one that does not take up so much resource.

    You might try Comodo Fred. ;) Remember each system is different so your system might not like Comodo or even has problems with ZA.....

    Hi greensman, thanks for the reply, your right, I know different systems can cause different problems or none at all, I tried zone on my 6 yr. old compaq, 2 year old hp, and my nieghbors 2 yr. old gateway, all 3 were slowed down considerably, and my hp went goofy, got rid of it on all 3 and things went back to normal, maybe I was just doing something wrong, whichever not sure, but will definatly give your suggestion a shot, plus there are others on the site you gave, hope I can work with at least one of them, thanks.

    bufferzone webbrowser and P2P protection through virtualization and such
    threatfire realtime A.V. using behavioral analogy (can catch "day zero" viruses and malware)
    drivesentry "a firewall for your harddrive" similar to vista's UAC but highly customizable

    RAV-I know this is old thread but just recently found. I was somewhat frustrated by ZAISS that I installed on new laptop with Vista. The free software seems to behave better with Vista. Thanks for the help!

    I need to add since my last post I found good spam blocker that incorportes with email nicely-BullGuard Spam Blocker. There was some interference with some of the antivirus software but finally working fine with PC Tools free antivirus.
    BullGuard is at www.bullguard.com
    PC Tools is at www.pctools.com
    Just wanted to add those to the thread.
