    Think about your experiences with Roger's techinical support, billing, and customer service and then ask yourself if you can trust these assclowns with your computer's security.

    ive never had any ' downtime ', never had to get a technician here, or had any billing fuckups in the 18 months ive had rogers high speed.

    i wouldnt trust ted rogers to burn if i lit him on fire

    geeks forum?

    urm... i wouldn't install anything from rogers.

    really the best security is:

    - hardware "firewall" - like a linksys or dlink router. don't let your computers have outside IPs. recipe for disaster and all kinds of people poking around at your computer directly. nasty nasty. using a router will solve 98% of your hacker / virus problems.

    - use norton antivirus and keep it updated

    - turn on autoupdate

    I think most peoples problems these days are with spyware though. i've never had any spyware problems. if you don't use warezed software like keygen.exe's and you don't click on the cool "check this out" jumpingMonkey2.exe that someone sent you you will avoid most of your spyware problems too...

    I did just recently install ms antispyware but it didnt find anything interesting... it does monitor for known spyware though. and alert you when things are installing themselves on your machine...

    geez that was a whole lot of blah blah blah eh? short version. don't install anything from rogers. ;) it's probably spyware itself.
