Very good article! However, I go a step further and install SafeSystem, which is a security tool that perfectly complements my other security programs. This program doesn't need to know in advance which virus, worm, spyware or malicious code is trying to infect my computer, it simply doesn't allow any program to be installed or copied to my system while I'm surfing the Web or working with my computer.
I found SafeSystem at: http://www.gemiscorp.com/english/safesystem/info.html
Also, you can see a good PR about this program at: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2006/1/prweb339444.htm
IMPORTANT: I want to clarify that I don't have any direct or indirect relation with the company that owns the product I'm suggesting, so my posts shouldn't be considered SPAM.
