I would also recommend AVG as well as these other programs...


Recommended Protection Programs

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
  • WinPatrol to monitor any changes that programs make to the registry.

If you do not have a firewall, here are 4 free ones available for personal use:


In today’s world you MUST have an Antivirus program. If you do not have one, here are 3 FREE ones available for personal use:

Personally, I view the firewall as a MUST in today's environment as well -- any of the ones in the post above will do. ( I use Zone Alarm with AVG)
An anti-spyware program or 2 is also a big help-- otherwise it'll clog up with trash real fast even with the firewall/antivirus defenses. The best defense is a good OFFENSE...
