Arggh so many things I need then! So basically I need a Firewall, Anti-Spyware and Anti-Virus. Is there anything that actually has all of them in one package?There is loads of free stuff that you can use. Firstly make sure u have a fire wall. Use something like Zone alarm is free and quite good. Also use a good anti spyware, lavasoft's Ad-Aware also free. I think there is a free anti virus GCS, or something (sure someone will correct me).
Another free app I would recommend is CCleaner.
Thanks for the info. What is Spyware anyway?I would definatley recommend Avast Antivirus. Adaware is good for removing spyware, you have to update it and run it regularly - also free.
Are you dialing up or using broadband?
Thanks for the info, I'm great with computers just not with the Security side of things. I will have a look into it in the morning and get myself sorted. I've been putting it off for weeks now.
