Software firewalls do use some resources, but usually not enough to be an issue (unless you have a weak computer).

Okay! I finished...and so far so good (fingers crossed that that was the fix). I have a hardware firewall and I didn't get SP2 because I had it for a bit and it messed up my screensavers. So, I'll tell ya if i have any more problems with the stupid viruses, but looks good so far. THANKS SO MUCH GUYS!

PJ.........

Go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and run an on-line virus scan.

I've been using Trendmicro for almost 1 1/2 yrs and have had no problems with it....Definitely check out the website,just might find what you really need.

I'm running Trendmicro'* Internet security
It can be set for 3,6,9 or 12 hr updates on the virus definitions. I scan daily viruses and have only had one get past in the 1 1/2 trs I've been using it.


It was an selfinstalling autodialer that slipped through in a pop-up.

I think it is great!!!
