What antivirus software do you all use?
I am using Norton Internet Security 2005 and Norton SystemWorks 2005, have not had any trouble with it before but have picked up 2 viruses in a week. Formatted my computer the other day and all seemed well but picked up another tonight "Backdoor.Beasty.Family". It keeps saying it has found it and deleted it but can't have. Have run the virus scanner in both normal mode and safe mode and it does not find anything. Followed instructions from symantec site about deleting things in the registry but can't find anything there either.

Every time i "right click" on something it occurs !

Have installed Microsoft Office 2003 lately, wonder if this is where the problem is from?

Hope someone can shed some light on the problem

Well, I am now back on!

Have decided to ditch Norton am now giving ZoneAlarm Security Suite a try. It has built in firewall and antivirus.
Have had to format my computer twice in a week, never had problems like this before.

Will let you know how zone alarm goes, not used to some of the workings of it yet
:cry: Can be easily upset you know :roll:
Thats it, am off to polish my head :lol:
This Zonealarm seems to be doing ok, suppose it's early days yet. Just started getting used to it.
Says it has blocked 302 intrusions since install and 12 of these have been "high rated". Only got it up and running just before dinner
yes have got two seperate hard drives for just that reason. Never encountered these problems before though, have always been virus free.
Wish I knew what kicks these idiots get from creating these viruses. If they are that clever wouldn't you think they would put it to better use.
The first one that I got closed down my firewall and antivirus and also put a new desktop image up telling me to go to a certain site and get their antivirus software.
The second one just stopped me from opening programs properlyand stopped me from using my right click on mouse..
Have just changed from Zonealarm suite, it seemed good, probably too good. I couldn't get some programs to run no matter what settings i tried.
I am now using the same setup as Pusser (scary :wink: ).
avg anti virus
Sygate personal firewall
Microsoft antispyware

my programs are now working, only just set it up so can't comment on how good i think it is !
