Just because one sells Cadillacs doesn't mean one can affords to buy one! Thanks benighted!

Thanks Áedán! I thought of that myself this morning, but saw that you had already beaten me to it. As for why I didn't do it last night, I can only claim fatigue, as it was quite late when Daniel started haranguing me for his siggy.

Might give this software a try, I dont normally use anti-virus software cus I dont seem to get viruses and I usually use a free one once in a while to do a quick scan.

Come to think of it I dont have anti-spyware or a firewall running....

Now running Norton and free AVG. The install of which issues stern warning of civil and criminal action for unauthorized distribution...DON'T DO IT GIZMO you'll go to jail and have to sleep with BIG BUBBA!

Or care that it's being used to attach others or care when it tells you to go to hell and kills itself! ":O}

My personal experience with AV programs is that none of them actually pick up all the threats. Here on AOA we've had examples of when one or two AV programs have picked up a problem up, but other AV programs have given the same file a clean bill of health.

Someone I know runs the Virus.org scanner service - he has a number of different AV programs, and they don't all pick the same thing up. Looking at the top 10 results shows that different AV programs are picking different things up.

What I didn't like about AVG Internet Security is that it hogs my laptop's RAM. This would be good for bigger capacity laptops with bigger RAM but notebook laptops like mine wouldn't be able to handle programs like this. I prefer to stay with the free ones like Avast.
