Currently I have;
AVG Anti-Virus,
Spybot: Search and Destroy,
Ad-Aware 2008,
Spyware Blaster,
SUPERAntiSpyware,
Spyware Guard
and MRU Blaster installed on my computer.

Are there any other decent free programs out there for keeping safe online?

Linux :lol:

I think you'll do just fine with what you've got. If you add a bit of common sense to your surfing and don't open blatantly dodgy email, you'll be even safer.

I use ZoneAlarm for my firewall, i've never had any problems with it. Once you've run the majority of your internet progs and told it thay they are safe, it happily works in the background.

I use Comodo for my firewall. I wouldn't say it's perfect (it has a few bugs), but it does the job.

Nowing the love of Digitalspy on this site, I thought I'd post this little article.

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/06/02/digital_spy_malware/

If your PC has gone wonky in the last day or two get yourself checked out. :P

:lol: Something similar happened with banner ads on other forums I've visited. It contained keyloggers which were used to steal game accounts. Luckily Opera blocks almost all banner ads and can't be exploited the same way IE can. (of course this can cause problems for legit scirpts; trying to buy pizza online in Opera is a nightmare).

FF, ABP and No Script for most of my browsing and Opera for streaming.

Sometimes you have to just revert to IE though. :evil:

I know that none of you would ever think of downloading illegal files, so you won't need to read this. :roll:

Try running Malwarebytes or Super Antispyware

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol

The free version is fine.
http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html

Backup your data then whichever you choose, install it, update it and then run it.

As for NAV 2006 :puke:

Buy a mac?

I get really frustrated with the college network, because to connect, there are certain firewalls and so on that we need, but macs don't get viruses, so I don't need them, and they're sitting there on my computer, taking up space. :x

Yeah, cos there are no viruses whatsoever on Macs :lol:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/04/16/new_ibotnet_analysis/

Don't forget as Macs finally reach a level of popularity worthy of finally being noticed by virus and malware writers that the Mac is just a glorified PC running Linux with a shiny frontend. This means that it's a lot easy for the bastards to write a virus now, rather than back in the old days when the Mac was all custom hardware and software. Another small problem is that Apple never admits to a fault so you spend years with security holes in your OS which they will never disclose.

Haven't got anything yet, and I've been illegally downloading videogame soundtracks from a dodgy website for a year now...
