Ok, firstly it is not kewl to send a virus to anyone.

As for your problem to virus’s, I would first say
“just dont accept any files then you wont get them”.

Also you should download a Firewall. Try
also get a anti-virus. Try

These will sort out your problem with virus’s etc.

No problem.
All that software I mentioned above is commercial therefore you have to buy it. If you cant buy it for some reason download KazZa and get it for free.

if the pc is slow, try getting sum more RAM

Make sure no other programs are running, and make sure no unnessasary programs are using the internet and lagging you. If your willing to pay out get a broadband connection, then you’ll be lag free.

do the first part of what qube said, and if that dont work try buying some more RAM, and for the viruses..download norton antivirus and keep it running while you play it will catch the virus and ask you what to do with it, its nice

I use Inoculate IT (unavailible now) And ZoneAlarm (best free firewall availible).
Is Norton anygood? My mate said its shit, but consider the fact he never updated it for 4 years…..might explain why he got a virus :biggrin: LOL!

The most commercial AV’s are best simply because you know the company will be around for a good couple of years to be able to support the product. Norton is good, easy to use as long as it kept upto date.Which it can do automatically.

As for Zonealarm being the best firewall, that is debatable. it is easy to use etc.But that doesnt make it any better than say Norton Firewall. They all have their strengths and weakness’s. Best to just buy a Cisco Hardware Firewall.
