@Joshua Ochs &/or AlmtyBobYou seem to know a fair about about protecting your system from Keylogger's etc. Just after some serious advice on what is enough protection?I don't share my account, I always use my own computer. It uses McAfee Antivirus & Firewall + Windows XP Firewall. In addition the Router's Firewall is enabled and selected ports open for the game to run. I browse with FF and use Noscrpit.Is there anything else you'd suggest?Thanks

That will generally do it. Firefox and NoScript prevent a lot of "drive-by" attacks. Beyond that, avoid sketchy sites like power-levelers or gold sellers, block advertising whenever possible, and don't run strange EXE's.Heck, I don't even run a firewall (I'm behind a NAT, and worms aren't as prevalent as they once were) and I run anti-virus less than I should. But I'm just more careful with my Windows box, and I have no problems.Meanwhile, I do all of my WoW stuff on my Mac. :)
