    Spies (6.0.2800.1106)

    I have noticed since upgrading to Windows XP and Explorer 6, that there seems to be unsolicited activity taking place, i.e., I'll be at a website, like right now, and I see activity in the task bar, something like the counter that measures when a site is being loaded. I think that is telling me that spies are looking at what I'm doing and I know there is spyware to help that problem.

    Does anyone know a low-cost spyware to get rid of this activity?

    Thanks.

    Here at the Lounge it could be the "Ad" box near the bottom updating and/or the Lounge graphics in the left upper corner updating.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Take a look at Adaware Standard Edition and Spybot S&D.
    Both are <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>. Many people run both as they seem to catch slightly different things.
