Q

Catching what antivirus programs don't

What is the best way to protect our systems against the spyware, phishings and other malware not detected by antivirus programs?
You'll need to run what's being referred to as anti-spyware software…There are a lot of options out there. Ones that I've used and have had good luck with are PestPatrol (now CA) and Spybot. If you're on a network with more than 10-15 computers, you'd likely do best with a solution that can be centrally managed so look for that.
