There are a few things you all can do to protect or at least check your PC.
There are 2 online virus scanners that I would reccomend:
First is Trend Micro which we use in a corprate campus environment:
next is Panda I like this one because you can disable the internet and it will keep scanning:
ALSO make sure you run spyware checkers at LEAST once a week
I run SPYBOT and clean and then run ADAWARE. They are two separate programs that search for spyware.
Also a router with built in firewall is best.
