    I'm using Avast Antivirus protection now - much better at protection than AVG so far - free download available here....http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home2.html.


    Another unmentioned free security program which is well rated is Abtrusion Protector - well worth looking at here...http://www.abtrusion.com/Downloads/appersonal.asp.

    http://support.it-mate.co.uk/?mode=P...index.datsuitedelete your index.dat files. AFAIK this is a similar product to "Windows Washer" but of course free.

    If I forget to rate a post which is justifiably entertaining, informative, lucrative, persuasive, or helpful please remind me.

    xp-AntiSpy

    "xp-AntiSpy is a little utility that lets you disable some built-in update and authentication 'features' in WindowsXP.
    For example, there's a service running in the background which is called 'Automatic Updates'. I don't know what this service transfers from my machine to other machines on the internet, especially the MS ones. So I play it safe and disable such functions. If you like, you can even disable these functions manually, by going through the System and checking or unchecking some checkboxes. This will take you approximately half an hour. But why wast time when a little neat utility can do the same in 1 minute? This utility was successfully tested by lots of users, and was found to disable all the known 'Suspicious' Functions in WindowsXP. It's customiseable, but comes up with the Default settings, which are recommended."

    A review of the product can be found below......(scroll down to Winner : Best free utility) ......

    May I also suggest filezilla for your FTP client section. FlashFXP is great, but it ain't free, and FZ does the job fine.
