Thanks!!! Very nice... I'll be using that and an app called tripwire. I'm still worried about cookies and the spyware that can be used in that manner....

Yes, I agree with Masand, firewall's are of good use - especially for an always on connection - as ever, minimal installs, updates, strong passwords, disable un-necesary services, and a firewall - better focusing on these to start with.
