I use the same progs as you m8. Although I run two firewalls at once with ZAP and Neowatch as well. Every now and again Neowatch picks up something that ZAP does not but IMO it's always harmless stuff so far.

I would say your set-up is fine but personally I don't even bother running "The Cleaner" in the background at all. I just scan my HD every few days with it to be on the safe side.

I read another post by you re: "BadTrans" IIRC and understand why you want to err on the safe side m8.

No don't think there is m8.

But you can download a free version of "Neotrace" which is a great little prog that traces any atempts to hack int your PC. You can find out which country, network, registrant etc.

You can get it from:- ***********.neoworx.com/

Sadly they have sold out recently to McAfee so just watch their great progs get swallowed up!

hi m8 the cleaner program is only worth running if u download
a lot
i have got it on my pc and just scan every couple of days
it has found some really nasty stuff that i did not know about
but nortons did not pick it up
if u download a lot and swap list etc.
its worth scanning the pc every 3days or if something weird
happens
scan the pc right away


backup2k1(the name u can trust)


ps

zone alarm pro is good
and nortons firewall 2002 is very good
and of course tiny usa firewall is very good tooo
