    SPYWARE

    I am wanting some kind of program/software that secures my PC against SPYWARE and or get rid of it. Can anyone tell me what is best? I do not want my personal info being sent everywhere. NOT that anyone could really USE my info, its just the principle of the thing! I hope you can help! I HOPE I am in the right section!!!

    Many Loungers use both Spybot Search and Destroy and Adaware.

    The Software Finds and Wants board is the forum where this type of software is mostly discussed.

    Just a further addition to Hans' post - search that forum for Spybot and Adaware and you'll find a lot of discussions on both products.

    Re: SPYWARE

    eh Mark...

    Of course Tuffy22s could always Search 'manually'.......glance over the Software Finds and Wants index pages and checking any that refer to spyware/adware or the specific programs mentioned. I find this is sometimes faster, as I get a better feel for the whole thread than I sometimes get from individual posts.

    Anyway.......
    Have a Great day!!!
