It says it will help with viruses, spyware, adware, and other programs. I hacker is using a connection to your computer, sometimes a program, so it's always good to run spyware and adware removers such as Spy Bot Search and Destroy, Microsoft Antispyware Beta, and AdAware SE- all free. I cannot recommend that site, as I have not reviewed it enough.

Unless you are the most boring person on the internet you have had some kind of infection. Just because your software didnt catch it doesnt mean anything.

lol to never get a virus you would have to have been on the internet for like only 10mins a day (the estimate is it takes about 15mins for you to get a Virus). ppl these days! -.- lol

i read somewhere that when you have a fresh install of xp before you can download and install all the security upgrades for it you are hit on average about nine times with something wanting to be on your computer that you dont like. (i belive this might of been before service pack 2)

I don't use any security software. I never been attacked, and I've never gotten a virus on this PC. No spyware, nothing. Owned it for about 4 years now.

I don't know how I did it, I'm running Windows XP too.

(I know someone will attack me now. )
