Hello farmer boy,
Just read your post. I have Windows7 Home premium.
I use Microsoft Security Essentials(FREE).
I also use SUPERAntiSpiware also FREE.
Malwarebytes is another good FREE program.
When I installed the new Windows seven I took it out. Between the two, nothing is getting by so far BUT.... anytime you go to a web site that has millions of followers, that is when you stand a good change to get hit.
I got hit on Utube TWICE!!
