Wow just found this thread and started downloading everything. I have Chrome on now and Microsoft Security Essentials and the full scan had no viruses. I tried downloading Malware Bytes but it won't DL for some reason. I plan on using Chrome and have MSE running in the backgroud (and i did the hosts thing) anything else you guys reccomend? I read the entire thread but i'm not really computer savvy so i didn't understand most of it lol.
But huge thanks to the OP and every poster, very helpful. (I used to pay for Norton anti-virus, money not well spent )
Oh an before i forget, does anyone know about VuZe? It's a torrent application (i think thats the right name) and i use it quite a bit and it slows down my Chrome window unless i "end process" via the task manager. My question is, is it safe? I'm kinda worried because i sometimes use my credit card on here and my old McAffe program put a red X over the http:// part of the URL and basically said every website is a risk (i noticed it did this after i installed VuZe). I did delete McAffe after seeing this thread but i was just wondering about safety.
Sorry to ramble on but any help is greatly appreciated.
