    thought i would post this, if you are having any computer problems, strange windows popping up, computer saying you have errors (that you probaly don't have), or if you have picked up viruses, try downloading spyboy search and destroy, fixed my computer, I almost went out and bought a new one, now its like having a new computer.

    And most important the program is free !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    takes about 15 minutes to run the whole program, found over 900 errors the first time i ran it, now my computer is a 1000 x faster and no stupid errors popping up when on the internet.

    Anybody else use this program ???????

    Thanks for all the links. A couple of questions though: When I checked for the Pest Patrol download, it said it was only available as a demo, and that you couldn't remove any bugs with it, that it could only identify problem files. Is it worth getting anyway? Does it pick up things that the others don't??

    BTW, I've used Ad-Aware for a while, in addition to my regular virus-scanning software. But Spy Sweeper picked up a bunch of stuff that Ad-Aware missed.

    Love, Scully

    I run Ad-Aware 3 or 4 times a week. Everytime you go on the Internet tracking cookies are downloaded.

    Spytbot is great too.

    I use Spybot....works great

    i use xoftspy, it seems to keep the insects away, but i only visit a few sites regularly so i don't get much spyware, just trackers which i guess come from one of those sites.

    I use both spybot and ad-aware. Spybot hasen't had many updates lately and seems to miss most of the issues I have. So when Big Tex suggested it a while back I tried it out.

    Works great!

    The only thing I don't like about either one of them is that they try to take my alexa toolbar out, and I happen to like my toolbar. Alexa suggests one that doesn't do that,. but it costs money and I'm way too cheap.

    Be careful when using Ad-Aware especially with XP. I can run it here at home but I ran it at work on one of the computers and it crashed. Since I am the IT person...all my fault. We use a T3 line and many programs that hook up into our main frame which is in NJ. Gotta be very careful where you use it.
