Make sure you keep your spyware, adware, and virus programs up to date...and run that firewall!!
There is very good free software @ Spychecker.com and Avast is an excellent antivirus which is free for home use.
Found a trojan called "mkrndofl" on one of our terminals....bypassed McAfee and our firewall!!! It is a modified version of the "zlob" strand.
I almost lost a harddrive due to this strand after looking for info on General Lee and Connex on my work pc....while I was on break of course!!

To the readers: Be advised that MANY MANY so-called "anti-spyware" programs (usually "free") are actually nothing but spyware themselves or a malicious program. Really cross-reference a program you may be considering choosing and one that's proven to be legit.
Here's a couple of GOOD and FREE programs.
www.safer-networking.org/ "Spybot Search and Destroy"
http://www.microsoft.com/protect/produc ... anner.mspx Microsoft's "Windows LiveOnecare Safety Scanner"
www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx Microsoft's "Malicious Software Removal Tool"
I use all the above mentioned programs and they work excellent. I also use a fee-based program----Paretolgic Anti-spyware www.paretologic.com/products/paretologicas/index.aspx -
I also use Microsoft's "Windows LiveOnecare" which is fee-based and different than the one above (the OncCare Safety Scanner is a free online version)

Hope everyone also knows to use as many anti-spyware anit-malware as you'd like but should use only one Anti-Virus program because they will cause conflicts
