    ok this is in no way a pop at the good people at neowin, but there has been reports (many threads) about a trojan in one of the ads on its site, NOD32 has caught it here, although avg did not, if you have visted there i would suggest you scan your pc.

    Again this is not a knock towards neowin - just a heads up

    supposing that's why the site was "down for maintenance" when I tried to visit

    AVG works good for me. Plus a good dose of Comodo, and some rkunhooker running in the background, and a bit of ccleaner to dump my temp cache.


    And a self modified boot sector so no other file may install itself in the minimal space left.
