Yes, it is called an Apple Computer
JUST KIDDING DON'T KILL ME
While it is an exaggeration to say that they don't get any 'pests', unfortunately the Windows OS seels to get the lion's share of the problems.
Here is my defensive strategy
I use a hosts file, Spybot's Immunize, Spyware Guard and Blaster, IESPYAD, and Spyware Block List. In addition, I use Firefox (IE only for M$FT related sites). I am behind a router and use WinXP's firewall. I scan with The Cleaner (anti trojan) and use Spybot and Adaware. I screen my mail with ePrompter and MailWasher

Re:Any all-in-one software out there? Yes there are!
In reviewing software it seems that they are pest specific - just for virus or just for spyware or just for pop-ups.
Doesn't anyone make one software that can guard against all of those? If not, then that would sure be a moneymaker.
Yes, there are software that can guard users from virus, trojan, worms, spyware, adware, keyloggers etc. Below are some of them:
Norton Internet Security 2004 from Symantec:
1. Anti-virus: Protect from virus, trojans, worm,
2. Blocks pop-ups, ads
3. Scan system not only items in #1 but also spyware, adwares and keyloggers
5. Privacy-control - alert you when private info that you ask Norton to keep private is being sent out while you are online.
6. Personal firewall
7. Cache and cookie cleaner
8. Scan email (in & out)
9. Trace attackers
10. Script and activex protection
11. Block traffics
ZoneAlarm Pro from Zonelabs
1. Host File Lock
2. myVault and IDlock - protects private info
3. Scan email (in & out)
4. cache cleaner
6. Hacker ID - trace hackers
7. Block ads and pop-ups
8. Lock down security (same as blocking trafic)
9. Mobile PC protection - blocks activex, scripts
10. cookie control
Mcafee RedZone Suite from Mcafee
Panda Platinum Internet Security from Panda
But all of the above doesn't offer real-time protection from Spyware. Their firewalls will only notify us if a strange program or application is making a connection or sending out information. Real-time protection is offered by other software authors - example: SpywareGuard
Re:Re:Any all-in-one software out there? Yes there are!
I forgot to note that ZoneAlarm Pro does not protect from viruses. Only Norton Internet Security, Panda Platinum Internet Security & Mcafee Redzone Suite has this "most" all-in-one protections.
