    Re: List of useful links

    You forgot Online Anti-Virus Trend Micro Housecall at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/.

    You're also missing WinPatrol (Plus - preferably), PestPatrol, CCleaner, and HiJackThis (http://forums.tomcoyote.org is associated with HiJackThis, cannot leave this link out as a partner).

    I think you should organize/categorize some of the things in your list by AntiSpyware/Malware/Hijacking/etc. Clean it up a bit.

    Panda = Evil!
    Chris is only listing normal AV's by the looks of it, Panda have an online AV that you have to signup for so they can spam you.

    Because I hit the character limit (and by some margin, 41,302 characters with a 12,000 limit), I'll just link you to the list I was trying to post:

    http://s12.invisionfree.com/gvgamers...showtopic=7411

    A hell of a lot of useful stuff.

    A nice little tool to remove some nasty stuff that most standard AVs miss can be removed with ComboFix (Although I had to download the program file named something else)

    In the spirit of galaxia, I have links to two programs I use:
    http://www.auslogics.com/disk-defrag
    Auslogics Disk Defrag
    On what disk defragging is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_defragging

    http://www.eusing.com/free_registry_...ry_cleaner.htm
    Eusing Free Registry Cleaner
    On why anyone should care: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Registry_cleaner
    Unlike 89% of other registry cleaners, this one will not be a malware and/or pop up at random while you sit back playing Svencoop and be all "OH GOD YOUR COMPUTER IS ABOUT TO BLOW UP UPGRADE TO SUPERMEGA REGISTRY TOILET CLEANER FOR THE LOW PRICE OF YOUR IMMORTAL SOUL!"

    FTP Manager Lite is an excellent modern free FTP and SFTP client software. The clean interface is super easy to use. It will perform your files transfers quickly and efficiently. One of the best freeware FTP clients that also supports FXP.
