Lol, is there a free firewall that is good that blocks trojans as well?
Anything apart from Sygate

You also might try using Firefox, or Opera (you have to pay for this one!), and stop using IE!
If you're worried about Trojans, you just have to be careful what you download to your computer, and stay away from unscrupulous websites.

This is the security software that i have:
AVG for my anti virus, and set to the highest and best protection that AVG Recommends.
Zone alarm Firewll, with firewall settings on HIGH.
Spybot, system immunized as well.
Ad-aware SE 1.06, Settings as reccomended by this site.
CCleaner, Cleaning out everything every day.
Xp-Antispy, some settings in effect lol.
Plus keeping my computer up to date with everything that Microsoft has.
Oh ok, Just that I thought that I was on the right track at first because I was not getting virus or anything like that for 2 months straight, then today I caught 2 trojans (which AVG removed) and one was from a site, and the other one I am not sure where I got it from.
How is firefox and IE 6 different, I still got the virus's etc last time that I used that software.
I am very carefull with what I download, but also we do have Real Arcade and that has not brought any virus to my knows.....
What type of sutes are unscrupulous websites? And [bleep] I do stay away from.

Go HERE and read about the different browsers. Just click on the links near the top for the different browsers and read about their current shortcomings. IE is the worst!
No one really needs to define this! I think you already know!! LOL!!

I have no idea what that is either, but it shows up in ZA for me. I just block it.

How did you block it?

Try blocking it in Privacy/Site list by clicking on it and choosing block... all the way across. That might take it out of your Firewall list.
