Am I protected against Bot's?

RUBotted found a Botnet, but when I run a scan I come up empty handed.

Re: BotNets

Not every antivirus/malware program finds everything. But if you're Windows is up-to-date and the McAfee software ten you should be fairly safe. You didn't give any details of wat software is installed... For a 2nd opinion you can always do an online scan like the one here.

If you want to check your Windows try the Microsoft Update website.

Re: BotNets

McAfee did not find anything, nor did the live one care scan.  It was a DNS type bot.

My PC is not behaving oddly, so I guess I am okay.  Thanks for the reply.
