I have an anti vir software,but is there a way to be sure that there are not bots using my pc?
Your internet connection will slow down and pc will lag a lot, like what is happenig to my pc and i can't format as i have very useful data!
run some sort of spyware/malware checker on it if you haven't (if all you're running is AV and you're trying to do BH stuff you need a resident spyware blocker, IMHO)
and if you're that worried about your workstation being mis-used put a sniffer on it and monitor the outbound traffic (and watch the inbound traffic while you're at it)...
Yeah, download Wireshark and give her a try.
and a firewall
firewall and anti - virus/ spyware/ malware will only help u 50%. If you are too paranoid then ur best bet is wireshark and a good process explorer. You have to take complete control of your pc and understand what exactly is going on in there
Wireshark, but ifyour running windows and doing bh or you surf for porn, it's infected

a TCP/ip UDP veiwer will show you all outbound and inbound conections to your pc.
Add that to a good process viewer like allseeingeye. A good bot will p*ss all over AV's
what the hell? I just downloaded one of these tools, i actually downloaded this one here just to check it out and see if i have any random connections to my PC.
i found a system process and did a whois on it, turns out somehow this domain http://www.akamai.com is listening in on my browsing habits it seems. Must be some kinda addon with firefox or even a built in process to XP.
I reckon this company is really spying on people or something and sending browsing data back to a large database lol
