    what are your favorite most effective ones? over the past 9 years or so ive tried many and i am using norton 360 due to my isp providing it for free. it has a firewall also, but it misses alot of trojans / malware. on top of that i run weekly scans with ad-aware, superantispyware, malewarebytes..
    :confused: Any suggestions on something better than norton? i know the top one changes all the time.

    you wont find any such viruses/keyloggers on BHW.

    The mods here would ban that member before they even post such a thing.

    I have been using Kaspersky for the last 3-4 years. They are awesome! And if U complain that they eat up your resources then I'm sorry to say U still don't know anything about "configuring" :p

    so far we have
    looks like everyone is using diff programs... i wish they made one that had all of the detection files from every company! that would be winning, because i know all of the companys use different virus database detections...

    I have downloaded keylogger from here when i was new and it was pain in the neck to get rid of it. btw i lost my months earning because the scammer took it.

    I recently saw a guy posting youtube commenter and telling people to download it and that thread stayed alive for couple hours and i bet people download the program which contained who knows what.

    Microsoft, Mcafee, and Norton suck balls

    Go with Eset Nod32, Kaspersky, or BitDefender
