I'm not that familiar with either of them - have you checked their websites to get a list of features?

That would involve reading....and that's no fun. So I think I'll just boot AVAST right on out the door.
Just for the simple fact that it couldn't detect all the stuff that anti-vir found on it's initial search.
Plus I found out that anti-vir protection is real time like avast. So that's that.

Thanks Daemon for all of your help! My computer is running so much better now as far as the trojans and malware are concerned.

Do you know of a way to make temp files automatically delete themselves when the storage unit is full?

Sometimes when I'm "browsing"....my pc just stops. I can't proceed with "browsing" untill I delete all temp files,history and yada yada yada. Then everything works fine. At times I think it gets so full that it won't even let me open the control panel to delete said temp files.I have windows washer which does pretty much what the control panel does but I would like it just to clear itself out when it reaches it's capacity...is that possible? What about just turning off the temp file collection....possible?


cheers,
Ray

Can't you just set Window Washer to automatically clean your system at specified times, such as at shut down or when you close IE?

Oh sure I can and I do. However,like I said it happens most often when I'm browsing. It cleans just fine at the beginning and end of all sessions but in the middle is my concern.

EX: I'll be looking at webpages and it will just freeze because the temp files are full(i'm guessing) and
I can't continue unless I stop what I'm doing and run windows washer or go to control panel....VERY annoying to say the least. Maybe I should increase the size of my temp file allocation?

Sounds like you need to - I wouldn't set it any less than 50Mb. You can adjust the size in IE via Internet Options.
