    I recommend to anyone who hasn't got an antivirus software installed to download this AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.

    Or try this avast! 4 Home Edition. Which i prefer. :D:D

    Regards Jase :wave: :wave:

    Great post Jase.

    Just one note:

    Spyware Nuker and NoAdware (listed on the recommended anti-spyware software page) were originally listed on Spyware Warrior's Rogue/Suspect Anti-spyware list. They have since been delisted, but I for one wouldn't recommend them.

    Regards :)

    You're welcome.

    I don't think that Spyware Nuker and NoAdware are rogue programs any more, but there are better "tried & true" programs such as Spybot - S&D, Ad-Aware, and AVG Anti-Spyware.

    Regards :)

    Yes there is Kitty500cat.

    Hopefully this thread will help all them who are unsure what malware is.

    Also added the AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5. For anyone who hasn't got an anti-virus program. :)

    And added avast! 4 Home Edition. :)

    Regards Jase :)
