If I've left anything off the list let me know and I'll add it. Also, if you want to vote for the item you want added wait to vote until I or another mod adds the item to the poll. It makes it easier for us to update the poll list.

For the record, malware gets installed from certain hosts/IP addresses. It's the same principle most addblockers use, not to mention spamfilters and the like. Some of them (ab)use certain services as well. Many of the programs in the above poll (and programs not present in it) keep their own host file that blocks malicious addresses and disable certain services. I don't need some dull program to do that for me...

Common sense mostly keeps the malware in rather than out.
I used to do the same, block the malware from accessing the internet.
But it proves useless for there are many with different names and some are embedded in other important windows files.

Common sense is all good when dealing with your own PC. I doubt anyone here really have any problems with their persnal computers and malware. Problem is, however, the non-technical folks who have no clue and rely on their ISP/OEM etc. to provide security solutions. Most of us here probably know some, and have to help them on occasion.
