    Well, I'll back AVG 99% after today's effort. It alerted me of a trojon that was contained in a link that I entered and it was quick to react and tell me that.
    I'm not saying it dectects everything, but it sure as hell helped having it installed. Besides something is definitely better than nothing at all don't you think?

    There for about 2 minutes Sunday night I wished I had software:laugh:

    Picked up not 1, but 2 backdoors off a P2P network --- greedy *******, 1 ownage utility wasn't enough for the hack!

    Took me about 25 minutes to track down everything in the registry, win.ini, system folder, etc. etc.

    2 reboots and finally deleted the scumware.

    i would never want to play games with viruses and trojans.
    yikes...its scary or may be i m just a lazy duck to do a reformat-reinstall if something goes wrong.
    btw i m looking at alternatives to AVG as a free anti-virus. seems to me that there are better alternatives available out there which don't cost you anything and most importantly are light on sys resources.

    not saying that they will be lighter than AVG but compared to some of the old hoggy ones like NAV, they sure are better.

    I guess I just got sick 'n' tired of software solutions while I was on dial-up.
    Constantly checking for updates, downloading that took forever. The 25 minutes I spent fixing things the old fashioned way was quicker than the software method ever was. And of course, there was no guarantee that the software would work.

    Hands on works!

    Of course, now that I have a bit of bandwidth a software solution might be a good thing to look into_________but, where's the sport in that???

    Old habits are so hard to break, as long as I get to win:thumb:

    don't forget TT after you format. it has great guides to be applied after a format and then you might consider a software solution too. :laugh:
