if you want to know how much knows about you (if you aren't using a ***** server) the webmasters of each website that you visits (including this one) just clik here on the below link, and do the privacy analysis. You will be amazed and scared.:eek: :eek: :mad:

they know all, even what you have saved in your hard drive. Luckyly not all the webmasters are too wise. and you can install firewalls, or to use a ***** server, etc

there might be a way to protect you privacy without paying outrageous prices...lol
Anyway, it's amazing how easily you surrender private information to assorted website addresses you visit...

if you haven't installed a fire wall i recommend you strongly to do it. specially if you spend many hours browsing the net.
i use this one and is really good. there is a free version.

Ya know, that firewall thing is pretty safe. Now I have all these IP numbers of people who try to hack me. It's weird. :o

not all of them are trying to hack you (but surely some of them, yes) most of those IP blocked are just spyware, and websites or programs that are asking for permission to acces your PC (and this could be dangerous because a Trojan could acces as well). But the Firewall block them. so as the Firewall says, "now you are protected".

about the Trojans; the antivirus can't detect all of them (specially if the antivirus is not updated). i recommend you to install a Trojan and worms searcher and cleaner.
I used one (free trial for 30 days), and it cleaned me a couple of Trojans that i have already installed on my PC. The name is "The Cleaner"
you can download it here:
