    Default My new purchse :)

    Ok so i just bought the internet security suite, just wanted to make sure i made the right choice...

    Will this package find and remove keyloggers? Even if i had them before i installed?

    Am i COMPLETELY safe now? No more worries about my game accounts getting keylogged?

    Anything else that will make me happier about my purchse? Like additional info?

    Thanks!

    Operating System:Windows Vista Home Premium
    Software Version:7.1 (Vista)
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi!
    Congratulation for your new purchase.
    Keyloggers? it depends how the keyloggers have been installed on your system.
    If the keylogger is rootkit based then I would be very careful...

    NO security suite can fully discover certain malware if installed before the protection.
    The best is to have a nice and clean reformat of the system and then install ZASS.

    A nice addittion to ZASS for VISTA is ZAFF (Zone Alarm Force Field).
    Note that ZAFF is at beta stages but current versions seems very stable on VISTA.
    Here: http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...eld/index.html

    For sure, if you keep your ZASS 7 updated and always active you will ensure your system will remain clean from malware

    You may want to try PREVX CSI to discover hidden rootkits, if any:

    Hey, thanks for the fast reply.

    I am scanning with Prevx CSI now, if i find any rootkit thingys should i reformat? And start fresh?

    And if i don't find any, will i be safe to carry on as usual?

    Thanks again!

    Hi!
    if you have been infected by malware, the safest approach is to reformat.
    Reinstall your OS from original disks, update the system with ALL OS patches. Install ZASS and updated it.
    Install all the rest.

    You can also check your system for outdated/vulnerable software with:

    Hi!
    it is never definitive, it depends if and how you got infected in the first place.

    To be 100% you are clean you need to start from scratch (re-format, re-install, etc)
    But if you feel that you are indeed clean and your infection was not serious then you should go on like you are.

    Have a check with the free superantispyware:
    http://www.superantispyware.com/down...NTISPYWAREFREE
    Donwload, install, update and run...

    You can have many of these checks but, as said before, the only approach to ensure you start clean is to start from a virgin system
