    Nothing at the moment but then again I'm very careful what I do on my PC. But when I get around to it I'll put on Spybot and ClamAV.

    Amen, that's all I use for my desktop and laptop. Never had any problems.

    I like MS Antispyware because it automatically scans, without annoying popups like Spybot S&D. Adaware doesn't scan.

    How about Auto Update Feature in the AntiVirus Software? Norton Anti Virus takes a lead amongst all with its live update utility. Microsofts Products are good but updating is very difficults for low bandwidth connections. Any more options please...

    I use the following:

    1 Norton Antivirus (Only Basic Protection)
    2 Microsoft Antispyware (Very Useful)
    3 Ad-Aware (One of the Best)

    Can somebody tell me where to get the registry mechanic.

    hmm keep... firefox up to date and you wont need any antivirus or antispyware as long as you dont download blindly... so yea i dont use any of those protection programs...

    Well I use Norton Internet Security 2004 and I can honestly say that it is totally hopeless. Autoprotect is meant to automatically scan files that you open/use on your computer right? Bah, I think its just a waste of RAM.

    Another thing thats annoying is the Proxy program that it runs. If ever at all it fails, your internet will not function without it no matter if you shut down Norton. You have to reset your computer (which for me running 256SD) is quite some time.

    The worst thing is when Norton actually manages to find viruses, it then 90% of the time proceeds to tell me that it cannot delete the file/s. What a load! I can go through and delete them with ease, yet Norton has all these *problems*.

    Asides from Norton and its hopelessness, I use Spybot Tea Timer which is a great program for blocking unwanted registry keys. It picks absolubtly everything up and nothing goes un-noticed :)

    I also use Microsoft Antispyware beta 1 and its also pretty good. It weeds out a few malware/spyware files that Spybot doesnt run and has a good range of advanced settings.
