    Hey,

    I have a mate running secretmaker and he reckons I should be too.

    Q : Is this a good, clean piece of freeware ?

    Q : Is it a good idea too install and run ?

    Q : Is there another program with a similar function that would be preferable ?

    I have always run AdAware and Spybot but have still managed to get hijacked a couple of times - though seem clean at present (touch wood). On both occasions this site has been wholly responsible for solving my problems (Thanks again!) so I thought it would be judicious to seek a quick bit of advice before making any security related changes to my PC.

    Thanks in anticipation of any and all advice which, as usual, is gratefully accepted.

    Indiman.

    There is a BHO app that I run all the time called BHO Demon. It protects you from the browser hijacks.

    Hello Indiman.
    Just go to Google.com and put secretmaker in the search. Decide for yourself. From what I read, looks ok.
