Hello. I was recently descovered this nice forums from google. I had the problem with the dialer win**.tmp.exe with the win***32.dll file. Anywayz i found it and deleted it (i found in the net someone advising to rename it to .txt but i dont find a reason why not to delete).
So i got some questions:
1) I need a good package of free programs that will keep my pc safe (well as safe as it can be) and keep it working properly too;
I got Zonealarm Intenet Security Suite, i trust its Firewall, but i dont know about the Antivirus. I also got registry mechanic which im very satisfied of. Others: HiJackThis, Privacy Guardian, Spyware Doctor, ATF-cleaner. The fact is that i dont want to have all the security programs exist, i need to know if im ok with those i have, or i need some others.
2)I wanna know which i sthe best browser according safety, ease and compatibility (e.g with JavaScripts).
I use Opera know, not for a strong reason, but coz of its tabs. I saw Microsoft made a nice toolbar that allows tabs, ill check it. But tell me plz

**Plz pro answers

-Thnax a lot in advance, sOwL-

As to the reason they say rename it to .txt its because changing the file extension causes w/e program/application was calling upon it to disregard it as something it needed. Changing it to a text file leaves it there for you if at some point you need it later, or its required for use in a later fix (if its one of those long walkthroughs) :-)
