BTW how do you change the hyperlink to say whatever you want?
use the following code instead of just typing the link:

Code:
[ url="link"]text to display[ /url] (leave out spaces before URL)
[ url="http://www.cpudiscussions.com"]CPU Discussions[ /url]

I use:

-AVG 8.0; I run daily scans at noon and I keep it on at all times. Check for updates every day.
-Spybot S&D; This is generally off. If I feel like my computer is running slow, I open it up, check for updates, and run them.
-CCleaner; It does automatic scans during boot to wipe off temporary data. If I feel like my computer is slow, I run registry scans. I keep updated at all times.

Unfortunately, all of this is a waste if you can't practice safe web-browsing. Try to avoid mischievous-looking websites. Read the urls before you click them.
