  1. After getting infected by MSBLAster, I decided to intall a firewall as well, Today when I did the virus scan again, It found two viruses, named W32 Randex.E
    The AV says it cannot be deleted, so it'ss itting in quarentine.
    What should I do?
    The firwall I installed is OUTPOST, the free version, should I install some other fire wall? What really is teh difference between the hardware based Firewall and the one that I have.
    I tried to activate the firewall in XP, it started with teh networks deal, which said that this option will let you set up networks, and configure Firewalls.
    I have XP professional.
    The comp is running fine, but don't know for how long.
    Thanks

    I would advise installing Norton Internet Security - I have been using it since a few days and it works GOOD has been able to detect intrusions and even has a FIREWALL ... so its GREAT!

    TRY IT !
