How to see what applications are being blocked
I have been having lots of problems with my computer. Starting this summer I have gotten many hook keyloggers, password dumps, and other malicious software. I've had to erase my hard drive several times because of this and even went to the extent to buy a new computer.
I'm baffled as to why this is happening to me because I only use my computer for my hobby, household sites, news and things of that nature. One of my credit cards was used but now, it's obvious to me that even my emails are being read. I have done everything I can to stop this since it's horrible to feel that someone is looking over your shoulder all the time. I even restricted my computer from my home network and I am the only person who knows my password.
I had Norton Internet Security 2008. I liked and used the rules logs a lot to block things I didn't recognize. However, I thought it was time to upgrade to 360...
First, I was not able to purchase the upgrade....I kept getting an error: SYS_000006...telling me that my cart was empty so, I downloaded the trial version until I can buy the software.
However, now I'm glad that this happened because before I buy it, I want to be sure that I can SEE what's being blocked. The Statistics Report tells me that a malware software was blocked, but I can't tell what software it is. The 2008 version told me.
Also, now when I try to track the rules and see what's trying to get into my computer I can't. I'm not able to check the tracking box on the firewall rules so, I have no logs.
Sorry this is so long, but I've had some incredibly frustrating things happening to me and Norton 2008 was the one that gave me the most information so, I thought that 360 was the way to go.
