    Hi,

    You can use the Pc-cillin 2006 Internet Security to fix them which is in April 06 DVD.

    Also for the security updates, you can wait for the May Issue of Digit and they may bundle some of the latest updates in Autopatcher.

    yes, run hijackthis and post ur logfile here or at www.hijackthis.de for analysis.

    meanwhile till then, i can only suggest that u donwload, install, update and run 'ewido antimalware' in SAFE MODE.

    MM.... zone alarm is good but to get all these u need the licensed version.. the free version doesnt not have the anti* included in it.
    another insight... seems that zone alarm has the funny habit of sending the users browsing pattern to it parent company! zonealarm says it just communication for update, while the rest of the work does not!
    maybe the israeli company that has acquired zonelab is getting nozzy!!!
    Google for "zonealarm spying" and u get a hell lot of storiesss

    U can use kerio personal firewall. To clean ur registry & temp folders U can use CCleaner from CCleaner.com. Its free and reliable. Cleaning the registry and temporary files is important step in improving security on ur system

    why r u using Zone Alarm and Avast together it wud unnessarily increase cpu load and zone alarm standalone can b used for purpose u r using avast and later is not even effective than former.i wud suggest u to remove avast and use zone alarm & spybot search and destroy optionally u can use lavasoft Ad-aware too for better stability

    Well no program is fool proof. U will have 2 make use of 2 to 3 different programs to be stable on the net. I guess ull be on dial up, if so follow the steps i had in place

    .1. Use a firewall probably from Zone Alarm or Kerio Firewall. Please only install only one firewall solution.
    *
    .2. Use an Anti-Spware software atleast 2 different companies like Spybot Search & Destroy, Ad-Aware SE Personal, Microsoft AntiSpyware.
    *
    .3. Use a good Antivirus solution. My personal choice is AVG Antivirus Software.

    ***
    Please do take the time to update these as new defintions are released very often. If u cannot download them try to fing\d the updates together with Digit CDs.

    As for having Norton I wuld say a big NNNNOOO. Hell its heavy on the system resources

    Zonealarm Free ed.= CR@P. It doesnt remember ur preferences..keeps hassling everytime. BTW, if u have avast pro 4.7 running, the need for a Firewall is greatly reduced.

    PS; Thats GREEN G icon is just the accessibility options of the control panel :D

    Hmmm...It could be one of the SpySheriff/SmitFraud variants. Download HijackThis and unzip it to dedicated folder. Then run it and click the button Do a System scan and save log file. It will give you a log file. Copy and paste the complete contents of that log.
