Having recently been the victim of internet fraud twice I am a little concerned about banking online again, I am running XPHome everything update,spybotS&D, avg and Adaware all kept uptodate. Do I need anything else to protect myself if I bank online again or if the threat is always there can it be minimised. Thanks

Hi joe95,do you do any banking transactions using a wireless connection.If so this could be where your having problems with internet fraud.Even the max security on a wireless connection can be dangerous to use for any sort of transaction involvng money
If I had been the victim of Internet fraud twice I would be looking closer to home. The chances of a home computer being hacked and all your passwords taken is the same as winning the Euro Lotto, in spite of what some paranoid sites maintain.
