    Recommended Protection Programs

    Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:

    - SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
    - SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
    - IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
    - WinPatrol to monitor any changes that programs make to the registry.


    If you do not have a firewall, here are 4 free ones available for personal use:

    - ZoneAlarm
    - Sygate Personal Firewall
    - Kerio Personal Firewall
    - OutPost Firewall


    In today’s world you MUST have an Antivirus program. If you do not have one, here are 3 FREE ones available for personal use:

    - Grisoft AVG Anti-Virus System
    - Alwil Avast 4 Home Edition
    - Softwin BitDefender Free Edition Version 7

    and also, ppl. Get "Microsoft Updates", not "Windows updates"...

    the Microsoft one has more recent downloads.
