    Hello

    I recommend the two following free Anti-Spyware programs:

    Microsoft Anti-Spyware

    Go the following link and click Continue and then click No, don't validate Windows at this time but continue to download and then click the Download button.

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en


    OR

    Spy-Bot Search and Destroy

    Go to the following link and scroll down to the SpyBot - Search and Destroy 1.3 file and choose which server to download it from.

    -------------------

    If you have any problems with either just e-mail tomvenus@gmail.com and I'll help you out.

    Ishtar


    P.S - Make sure that when they are installed you download the latest Spyware definitions for the program

    I'm sorry but I don't recommend Microsoft's spyware program...It's too invasive and will remove Kaaza-lite and programs similar if it's not Microsoft's own programs, it even took out tons of stuff out of my registry and screwed me up good...also the word on the street is that all the bad's out there have cracked Microsoft's spyware and it will not remove half what it supposed to...

    well I use all the freebies and they seem to do the job...

    1.Ad-Aware SE personal

    2.SpywareBlaster

    3.SpyBot

    Well, if these guys are so brilliant don't you think they will have cracked SpyBot S&D, Ad-Aware and Spyware Blaster if more people actually use these aswell? All of these programs are free and not protected by such a high-profile company like Microsoft who (if they found out) could get you sent to jail for a long-term for cracking their software :P

    I would recommend running Microsoft Anti-Spyware & SpyBot S&D.

    Microsoft's works in real-time to block most spyware from being installed and SpyBot works a lot better when run stand alone on a single scan

    Ad-aware SE Personal is WAY better that Spybot...when I used to run Microsoft Anti-Spyware, spybot, and ad-aware, ad-aware would always find more stuff than the other two...Here in Toronto a lot of Computer shops have stopped recommending using Microsoft Anti-Spyware because of problems and the aggressiveness of the program. Oh and by the way ISH who on earth hasn't used some form of Microsoft Cracked/hacked program,(Their Operating programs just to mention a few) their one of the easiest targets...Apparently the reason that their program got hacked is because it was too complex and therefore had bigger holes in it, while the others are simple scan programs and seem to mind their business unlike Mr. Gate's program..Of course I'm only a dumbass and only repeating what my Mommy told me... :lol:

    I run adaware, microsoft antispyware, spyhunter, and spybot search and destroy. Why do I run multiple ones? Because what one misses, the others catch.

    True...I run 3 as well for the same reason, but ad-aware catches more than spybot.

    Why does Microsofts catch less? Because it is the most used, and, therefire, the one to avoid. Stupid.
