Internet security

There are various free spyware removers such as Ad-aware, however have found that Norton Internet Security 2004 (£18 on E-bay) makes your computer invisible on the web and as a result I have no attacks by Trojan viruses and no spy ware. The most important thing is to get software that keeps up to date, which Norton does everytime you log on.

rossored started this thread Actually, Norton gets a bit of a slating in some reviews. The free ones are just as good .

Rosso, here's another rogue spyware list. I don't know whether you want to replace the one listed here or just add this. http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

A quick google for it suggests its the Kontiki Secure Delivery Plug In for video / software and audio distribution and a suggestion that it is spyware on another site and found this reference to it

Also worth looking at: http://www.computercops.biz/postp52185.html and

http://amazingtechs.com/index.php?showtopic=13643

which mentions an easy way to remove it in the second post from Bistro

Hope this helps

Stew
