Well you can certainly get TrojanHunter
and have it on your system - along with a solid h/w firewall. I'll certainly be a happy camper. The point is you usually need a s/w component that can deal with trojans.
And we don't need 2 hardware firwalls man! NV h/w firwall and a router based firewall.

Is reasonably priced 500$ USD btw?
Too risky man. A smart user is anyone who doesn't download "any" executables from the internet. Not even "trusted" download sites. Unless you are downloading through a secure channel. I am on a University network. Any retard who knows what they are doing and has enough time could lead me to a false download if they wanted to - on an unsecure channel. So the "smart user" thing is only applicable if you get all ur software on CDs.
$500.. hmm.. too much man. I was thinking around $150 - 200 US. The price of getting a good s/w firewall/trojan scanner and a good h/w firewall that might not neccasarily have trojan capabilities.
Yo are u running any services?. Why aren't ur ports stealthed?
