index - BasicIncome World Poverty Antivirus, Antimalware, And Antispyware Resources - - Aurora Well after being totally paranoid about the whole business , I settled for just Zone Alarm Pro security suit for Firewall and Virus protection. I have to say I am very happy with it BUT I run SpyBot occasionally, Ad-Aware ALL THE TIME, have SpyWareBlaster 3.3 running and Microsoft Beta and SP2 for XP. EVERYTHING IS FULLY UP TO DATE. BUT it doesn't stop Cookies & Data Miners being installed and many sites will not run without allowing their install, plus many International sites are not protected from the local cookies etc by the major European or US vendors. The Bad news is that after months of trying to find the same answer I came to the conclusion NOTHING exists or probably ever will that does all things for all men!!! THE GOOD NEWS IS!!! HOW???? I have to say that Microsoft Beta runs every morning at 1am, and these days its just normal to get a Zero result. OH, what you suggest or seek would make the Manufacturer and designer Millionaires over night......

Where Have All the Lobbyists Gone? On paper, the influence-peddling business is drying up. But lobbying money is flooding into Washington, DC, like never before. What’s going on? It was 4 o’clock in the afternoon, and I found myself hanging around the House-side entrance to the Capitol building, hoping to interview lawmakers during the protracted government shutdown in October. The members had been called by the Republican leadership to open just one portion of the government without authorizing funds for the Affordable Care Act, a partial solution that had rallied Democrats in opposition. As dusk settled in, I lingered to interview the representatives as they walked in and out of what everyone considered at this point to be a scene of political theater. Many of the people assembled around me, I noticed, were former lawmakers and their associates. Behind me, I heard the distinctive croak of Zach Wamp, a former congressman who was busy talking up his new job to current members of Congress.
