Hello my friends,
I would like your advice please.
I have just recovered from being stung by a horrible nasty virus called Install_Patch.exe Trojan Downloader win32.bagle.bxn, I was advised by my previous AV provider to have the drive formatted which is what I have had done by a friend and he seems to have reinstalled all the major programs without any problem, I still get the Windows XP updates and support for MS Office which I did not think I would get if the hard drive was reformatted, I have installed Kaspersky as my new AV, do I need a second AV or one will be enough but I would like to install a Registry cleaner to go with it, what would you recommend?
Thank you in advance.

Hi,
You should never use 2 antivirus detectors or firewalls as they will interfere with each other.
There is a lot of debate as to the value of registry cleaners but in general, they can not hurt, Ccleaner is a good program. Ensure that you backup your registry first.
Malwarebytes would be good to have as well on your machine.

Hi Bob,
Thank you for the advice. I will try those two that you have mentioned, yes I agree with you I have read about Malwarebytes on here and it seems to be a good program, I don't want to be stung again. As for Ccleaner, this is also a good registry cleaner and will clean up a lot of other things as well like the internet temporary files, history browser and lots of other things, you are right about the backup of the registry, I think it is essential that I do that. I used to have RegistrySmart which also did a good job without making any adjustments to the program, it just scanned the registry and that was it, nothing else but when I got the last update for it my AV detected that it had a virus on it so in order to use it I had to disable the AV first.
Thank you once again,
Primero
