    Elimiware

    Has anybody used this service: http://www.elimiware.com/? It is an alleged free online scan for adware, spyware, and viruses. I couldn't find any incriminating references on the Net and it seems legit but I thought I'd check here to make sure and see if it really works or is a waste of time (i.e. doesn't find anything or finds a lot but doesn't help remove anything unless you buy).

    Thanks

    I never heard of this one but there are numerous programs around.
    I would not use a program that is crippled so as to not remove anything, just shows you what it found. Even 30 day trial progs should be FULLY operational in order to test them properly.

    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!

    The design of the site certainly looks like spam!

    If you check the whois and then search the owner "Airon Corporation" on Google, you will find a lot of very negative reports about its business practices. Relevant keywords include "SeizedRealEstate.Com" and "CheapCarFinder.com"...

    I don't know if it is crippled or not. I never tried it for the obvious reasons. I'm just checking to see if anyone else has - apparently not.
