My bank doesn't use trusteer, I use it purely to confirm the site is legit and for the anti-keylogger action

Didn't know it could be used that way, i though it had to be run with one of there supported bank's for it to work.
Thanks for the tip :)

I have now added Secunia.  Wasn't really sure what I was doing but it now tells me I am 99% secure.  Need time to really digest all the other info!

Open DNS basic.  Is this easy to install?  I note that I have to provide my personal email address etc to sign up for the free option.  I also read the firewall guide on the 'how did I get infected' link on Essexboy's post and am now mighty confused.  As I said, I have had problems with conflicting firewalls in the past but am thinking of adding Online Armor so I see a lot of you use that.
With everything else that I have installed do any of you foresee any problems?
Thank you,

Well, I have installed Online Armor (free) with no problems.  Mightily impressed with it so far!
I think I can close this query now - thank you one and all!

Sure would be good if you updated your PROFILE if you go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information then update your Signature: with information like my signature as this helps the helpers offer pertinent advice.

I wonder If a Green Goddess knows how to do this ???

Are my heroes still out there?
