    I'd make sure that Java is completely updated and that all traces of older java versions are removed.
    You can use JavaRa from SingularLabs for this; link

    Hey dude. Not used Avira for about 3 years to be honest. I used to get fed up with a little pop up add that always came up asking you to upgrade to the pro version. Generally I wait till the end of year comparative tests and decide then. But right now I'm using AVG - MBAM.
    I always keep a little dongle I call my security tool box, with spyware blaster, adaware, sas, spybot, Ccleaner, Revo uninstaller, and mbam incase of emergancies. :0

    Cheers.

    You're right. JavaRa has been sold by developer Fred de Vries to SingularLabs. (link) He does still work on it though but now for SingularLabs.

    Is there any firewall that has more options than Comodo? Like as in, stopping upload vs download traffic, etc. I'm also sick of Comodo's inability to remember programs it "learns" are safe.

    Any suggestions are welcome. I'm currently considering Armour, but want something that's tried and tested.

    So what do you guys think about Comodo Firewall? I just installed it because I wanted a little more control and functionality than Windows Firewall. It seems to work pretty well in terms of functionality. Hopefully it's also more secure.

    Is it recommended to have both firewall's (Windows + Comodo)?

    EDIT: It seems to remember what programs I mark as safe.

    OnlineArmor is rock stable. I've been using it since years, also the paid version since a couple of months. Recommended!
    It hasn't got more options than Comodo though but it's HIPS is just as strong. OA is a tad more user friendly imo.

    Norton has been very good to me these past two years :) I once have used Mcafee but it was giving me trouble. After the switch, never again that I will make the same mistake :D
