Ok, looking over these forums, I can see that most of you guys here use Norton, Macafee, and some other various anti virus programs, so i decided to make a list of the programs i use that some of you may not of heard of, here goes;


[list]
[*]Anti virus- Avira anti virus (Free Version) Free-av.net
[*]Firewall- Windows Defender
[*]Malware remover/protector- Malwarebytes anti-malware ( http://www.malwarebytes.org/ )
[*]Internet Browser- Firefox 3.0.10 ( Firefox.com )
[*]IRC Client- mIRC ( mIRC.com )
[*]Operating System- Windows Vista Ultimate
-____________________________________-
if you can think of anything else you want me to add, or if you want to know what i use for anything else, just ask me. and NO I will not add Norton, Macafee, or AVG to this list EVER!

I have two machines running XP and whatever security is built into that and I have Mcafee on this one. The rest of my machines (W98 or DOS)are running totally "bareback". This is really the only one I browse on. I do run the scanner on the others occasionally and the only real thing it ever finds is a bunch of retailing spyware and tracking cookies on my wife's machine. In all fairness some of these machines are running DOS and I doubt there has been a DOS virus that wasn't an EXE, COM or BAT released for ... ever.
Anyone who opens one of those, without understanding what it is, deserves what they get.
The only real viruses (trojans etc) I have ever found were buried in warez I downloaded from usenet and I scanned them first so I didn't open them.
