Good information, good post. I have been using CC Cleaner for years.


Most Internet Service Providers give you a free, complete suite of virus software when you sign up. In my case, McAfee or Norton or Kapersky.{#smileys_dlg.Happy}

I use SuperAntiSpyware and have for years....I use Remove it Pro in conjunction with it. Anything hanging around after I run Remove it Pro...check what it finds though as it does not like things like logon studio or some webcam software. just uncheck those boxes. MalwareBytes Anti Spyware is good too. All available from MajorGeek.com.


 


Kasperskys or Nod32 are good virus scanners and firewalls. Cheaper than Norton and more effective than Norton. Much smaller footprint on your resources than Norton. Stopped using Norton 2004 when it locked me out of my computer with that soppy Ghost thing and I had to get a tech to fix it. Norton in my view is a have!{#smileys_dlg.Congratulation}

I still use Firefox...see no point in changing. I'm on version 13.No problems with it at all. Anything google linked I avoid as google spies....and loads tracking cookies on. I like to go where I like and not where google tells me.
