Seems like every few months I end up formatting my computer because of some virus that has attacked my system. I've come to accept it as this is such a huge Internet site that all the elements I deal with (including email) I am prone to such attacks. I run Norton AntiVirus, which for the most part, prevents any serious attacks. However... Yesterday I got hit with one of these dam hijack programs. It placed all sorts of SEARCH and ADULT icons on my desktop as well as totally taking over GOOGLE. I used PEST PATROL to remove the elements of the hijack worm/virus, but now my computer no longer can access GOOGLE. Question.... I am getting a new computer within a month. What program can I install (on top of an antivirus) that will sit in my taskbar and continually monitor my system from spyware and browser hijack attempts? With 2GB of ram on board, I'll run a slew of software if it means my next computer is most likely NOT to be sabatoged. I know nothing is foolproof, but I could use your recommendations in getting as close to foolproof as possible. Thanks, guys!
