No, I'm not promoting my business. I don't even know this fella, but bless his heart.

His program picked up forty seven "little friends" that other anti-virus software missed. I wish I wasn't broke, so I could send him some money, as soon as I'm not, I will.

Its best to run another adaware program after you run Spybot S&D. Adaware from Lavasoft is what I use.
Once a week I have a schedule

VScan - Adaware Scan - Spybot S&D, that should CYA

Install SpywareBlaster too. It will block malicious programs before they can ever download.

If you think you're having problems with viruses, spyware, etc., then the guys at Spywareinfo are a godsend. I got a nasty infection a few years ago ... it came in on a Mattel Barbie game I bought in a mall for my daughter, believe it or not, so these things don't come from merely incautious websurfing ... and they coached me through the cleaning-up process.

All ASAP members are that way.

Quote:
ASAP stands for the Alliance of Security Analysis Professionals.

ASAP started out as a small band of security support sites under siege, but has expanded rapidly to include the "Best of the Best" the Internet Security Community has to offer.

ASAP is made up of internet security oriented website and forum owners, administrators, and staff, as well as individuals, companies, and various organizations also dedicated to providing security related support to computer end users.

ASAP is a joint effort dedicated to assisting end users with as seamless a process as possible by using methods such as cross-referrals, multiple product support services, easy information access, and cross referencing with verification.

ASAP's goals are:

* To ensure a high standard and quality of security support no matter where you seek help.
* To recommend in an equal and fair manner products available to keep your computer clean and safe, regardless of pricing.
* To ensure that end users are not affected by so called "product wars" and unfair marketing tactics, which have plagued several industries in recent years.

ASAP ensures that quality support and assistance will be freely available - knock one of the support networks out and another will pick it up immediately. In addition, pooled resources permit the ability to provide support redundancy, thereby adding an additional layer of protection against Internet based threats.

If you see the ASAP logo or banner used by a website, bulletin board, or individual, you can be assured that you're getting the best support and assistance possible, as the combined efforts of all ASAP members are involved in helping everyone, and ASAP won't give up until your important investment is safe and clean.

ASAP is a non-profit, volunteer network.
Liz ASAP member since 2005
