I use Trend Micro and Ad-Aware no issues at all.

Postcard virus's are real BUT they've been around for quite awhile now........their isn't a "Big Virus" comming, it has been around in multiple different forms.

The biggest protection is NEVER click on links contained within e-card notifications or any other e-mail. Instead, go directly to teh website on the card company (bank, credit card, etc.). Links can be spoofed EASILY.

I agree with Tom...... check SNOPES.

Now I've got to go..... I've inherited a couple million dollars from a long lost uncle who past away. ;)

Now why can't I get one of those emails?

I've been holding out - Maybe it's time to collect. With everyone who wants to befriend me for transfer favors and all the newly dead relatives...I think I'm worth billions.

:evil: I have just spent two days trying to get rid of a rootkit i picked up somewhere. Anyway i finally got rid of it with Avast free edition and also came across a wonderful freeware programme called Peerblock that helps prevent such attacks. It stops advertising or spyware oriented servers, computers monitoring your p2p activities, computers which have been "hacked" . You will be surprised at who tries to piggyback on legit sites to get into your system. over the last couple of hours i have had the Sony network Taiwan, Jiangsu province department of justice, parliament of Finland and Kanazawa cable telivision co. trying to access my system. Maybe im just being paranoid but why would they want to covertly have access to a computer.
Here is the link to the software. http://www.peerblock.com/releases
