We run Adaware and Spybot. Also Symantec, but the upgrades they've been supplying are so frikkin' big that my connection times out before I can download them, so right now my Symantec definitions are seriously outdated. I run Adaware and Spybot scans manually, and Spybot runs some checks on its own (it's been flagging registry changes from a couple of installs I did recently, so I'm confident that it's on the job). So far I've found nothing too terrible...one of the beauties of dial-up is that not even the viruses want you! Now I've jinxed it...by tomorrow, I'll be fighting a serious trojan/virus/key-logger problem...I'm sure of it!
