  1. I just used trendmicro's online spyware scanner and it found 6 pieces of adware and deleted them.
  2. Thanks for the response. I do have ad-aware se and spybot. I updated them and ran them both. Ad-aware se found nothing and spybot found nothing except that during the scan i got a warning saying there was a prob with the spybot include highjacker file and to check the log for an error or something like that. What does that mean? I also ran the macafee online scan and this alos froze when it reached a certain number of files, so did the pc pitstop full system scan. I don't know why. I have a free version of edwido trojan scanner on my pc and that also found nothing. I notice in my

The t
  6. I got my ad-aware se to update, I guess it was just a problem with the internet connection or osmething.
  7. Thanks for the repsonse. My ad-aware se is not updating..anybody having the same problem? It saids that it cannot read the file when i try to update. How do i upgrade the java version?
  8.

  10. Hey guys, i've seen in some of the posts pple here recommending microsoft anti-spyware program...how good is it actually? Does it slow your pc down and use alot of resources? Can it be trusted as much as ad-ware se or spybot? Any reports of crashes? Does it get along well with other programs like the ones i currently run: ad-aware se, spybot, spyware doctor, spyware blaster, edwido security.....?? What about firewalls, if i get a firewall do you know if it well get along with it? Thanks
  11. ok so i'm guessing nobody knows anything about the trendmirco spyware scanner????
  12. Hey i went over to the terndmicro website today and saw that they now offer a free online spyware scan so i tried it and it found 5 things but all my other programs tell me i am clean so my question is how accurate is this terndmicro spyware scan and should i trust what it claims it has detcted on my pc? Anybody else tried this scan? Thanks.
  13. Well, ad-ware se and spybot tells me I am not infected yet panda's online scan said i have 2 infected files and i tried spyware doctor free version and it found 7 infections ad-aware and spybot had missed. I removed them but i do have them in quarentine. May be you could remove the stuff spyware doctor found but leave them in the program's quarentine for awhile and see how your pc runs after that. If all is well and everything seems fine then you can go on to delete the entries in quarentine. If not, then just restore the entries.
  14. I won't mind buying spysweeper either because i loved the job the trial version did on my pc but I already have so much anti-spyware/adware programs on my pc and it seems as if it still isn't enough
  15. I have been using edwido for 3 days now and it says I'm clean as well Hey did i don't remember if you said you use this progrm or not but did you try spyware doctor? I have been using it for about a week and in fact it found some stuff ad-aware se and spybot had missed although it still didn't find the adware entry panda says i have.
