It took me all of 30 seconds above to answer the the gentlemans question , I really do not see why you need 10,000 questions to answer a simple question no matter what OS he has.
Just because he runs XP does not mean he cannot pickup some usefull information here and all he received was grief from most of the posts here .... most coming from senior members ..... I am embarrassed

win 7, win xp (vpc)
 
 

I personally like the combination of Comodo and malware bits. YOu can find them both at download.com or cnet.com they are the same place. both great programs and both have very high customer ratings. the new comodo had a built in sandbox feature if your familar with sandboxie then you might get excited about that. they are both free, comodo also has a great firewall built in. I recamend you do the full install of comodo and let it do its magic.

Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).
 
 

Another option is SpywareBlaster | Prevent spyware and malware. Free download. - should strictly be run in conjunction with a 'proper' anti-spyware program i believe.

If it's not too much hassle for you, I suggest re-installing Windows or reverting back to an earlier system image (doubt you have one so you should look into that for the future).

Run Hitman Pro then the other suggestions by thathagat.

Thank you all for your great help here. I knew I wasn't mistaken posting this thread here.

And to edee and stillfreefilms - I could care less about all those "senior" members with their thumb up their ***. Arrogant and sarcastic replies are ones which should be ignored and not be given even the slightest attention.

I actually don't see any arrogance or sarcastic replies in THEIR posts, but I do in one.

SANDBOXIE and my computer shut down. Rebooted and everything is fine.
Is sandboxie set to run in Windows 7 HP 64 bit?
