    Just statistic :)

    Hello all!
    While I was surfing and reading posts in the forum I found a lot of people being infected by worms. I was also infected several times, but not with one - with more than 4000 worms. So I would like to know is there anyone so stupid like me (i don't want to offence someone) to surf internet and to not care for worms.(The things now are changed: i'm always updating my antivirus program, and i feel better )
    And what about you guys? Were you infected with so many worms at once?

    Danielsd,

    Will you PLEASE make an old man happy?................

    Go to the DiamondCS website and get RegistryProt
    Go to BillP Studios site and get WinPatrol

    Get WinSonar (Zantec, I think)

    Maintain an up to date (Daily) AV
    Get a firewall that you understand.................like ZoneAlarm set to maximum security

    I have answered your poll, but I must say, none of the damn things got to run


    EDIT: By the way, when it comes to worms, "Bob Martins" is the product of choice
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    Oh Nihil thank you for the advise, but I already took precaution.
    I found 4000 worms on my PC while i was still using dial up once a week for 10min, and was thinking that nothing can happen to me. (I was wrong, of course)
    Now i have antivirus program that i updates 3 times a week, Kerio personal firewall, and everything seems to be fine!
    Bill Gates said: "Everyone must be punished, if he doesn't have an antivirus program and firewall on his PC" I absolutlu agree, and i was punished(from 4000 worms)
    Friends, please read all antivirus, security threads in Antionline forum !!!

    Hey,

    Have you looked at/installed that which I suggested?

    Or, was it just another useless finger exercise (typing) on my part?

    Some of us actually wonder if it is worth a reply sometimes?

    Sorry, friend. I just visited the web sites but i didn't install something. As i wrote it is just statistic( I love statistic).
    For the moment i feel free from worms and viruses, so i'm not wanting to isntall something .
    I think that i have 90% security with my antivirus program and firewall.
    Sorry, that you did one useless finger exercise, i hope you will not have parkinson .
    Peace borther !

    90% is totally inadequate..............

    You may love statistics.............please do not become one

    That is good for you axio!
    Hey nihil do you know that 100% security is never possible. Perhaps when the AI is reality, but not now !
