The malware post, I use McAfee Internet Security, buy a £6 key card from ebay every year and haven't had one scare in about 4 years. On standby is Malwarebytes (and recently on removing someone else's virus - Adwcleaner, Junkware removal tool and hitman pro) A wee bit excessive, maybe :) Hope you're well.

Aye, I'm on the mend now. Cast is off and a light protective covering is on for a while. Intense physio to try and get it moving again.

Re Malware: Does McAfee not slow your PC to death? I've never tried it but that's what I've been told about it.

There is an argument that no scares is a bad thing as maybe your security has missed something. I remember having AVG in for a while and I never had any problems, or so I thought, until I uninstalled it and tried something else. Then again I always use free stuff as I'm a cheapskate!

Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better. Long may the healing continue.

McAfee seems OK, Norton is awful for that, resource hog. Ran 4 different malware removal programs last week. All it found was Stumbleupon toolbar (which I had installed). It seems I'm running fort knox here :) Very careful what I click on and since I installed Adblock plus there's no more dodgy fake Java pops up on certain websites.

Never seen a pop-up for years now due to AdBlock+ and NoScript. Takes a little setting up at first but is a brilliant piece of kit

Joanne Casey said...

Will look that up. Downloaded Adblock on your recommendation :)
