I am getting the minimum of 5 or 6 trojan viruses per day. I run the scan and get them out and the next thing I know they are back. I'm pretty suspicious that I'm getting them from google. It seems they coincide with when I've done a search on google. Anyone having problems like this? It is driving me NUTS!

What sort of firewall/antivirus software are you using? I know Aaron has Untangle on the server and it seems to keep everything out.

I'm using the free version of Avast. It isn't the virus software because it is catching the viruses. It is just a matter of where they are coming from.

Sadly they crawl in when we aren't looking - and they seem to be hitting places that "use" to be safe :cry: All you can do is keep the protection up to date

The only time I had a problem with Google is when clicking on pictures...so I don't anymore.
