Deary me! I've just realised since I got my 'pooter back I've got no anti-virus stuff. Can anyone recommend freebie downloads and can anyone point me to this spybot thingy? Any other help appreciated. I don't have a great deal of space on the machine for big fancy programmes!

<font color='#000080'>I can post you the norton antivirus CD that Sean so very nicely gave me.  Gives you a firewall etc.  PM me if you want it.

My gf uses AVG, and it works just fine, so long as you keep up with the downloads, of course.

Me, I just don't bother

Which would, of course, be software piracy and a criminal offence and most definitely NOT condoned by Yorkshire Divers!

Of course one would never condone doggy software…  
 

Pete drop me a email and I MAY be able to point you in the correct direction with regards to the spy bot software..  And Helen or I could could advice you on how to purchase  
 a copy of Norton or I could

Thanks Chaps'n'Chicks,
I'd actually forgotten the guy that fixed the machine gave me an "original" copy of Norton System works 2000. I've just installed that and ran Spybot through. It picked up quite a few "wee bastards". He did also tell me though that the machine only has 2-3 months left before it does breathe it's last breath, so I'll probably just live with what I've got 'till I "need" to buy a shiny new one.

<font color='#736AFF'>In that case add Mailwasher - a freebie, to your software and clean your emails at the ISP server rather than your own PC
