    Network topology is 1 main domain and many workgroups in other physical locations. The workgroups have no knowledge of the domain and are running windows 95, 98, 2000 and XP. Domain is mainly running XP.

    The problem is the workgroup PC's are getting a TON of ads, popups, and whatnot from standard web browsing. Our current solution is to have them bring it in I scan the machine with Ad-Aware, Spybot, and Hijack this and then I send them on their way.

    I want to know of an enterprise wide solution that I can update definitions to each machine, have it scan on a certain day, if it finds something that it nees to rescan on bootup it will set itself to rescan on next bootup and is as good as the 2 aformentioned products.

    Are they a part of the domain in any way?

    There is IP communication between the 2 but they are not in any part of the configurations "truely on" the domain.

    Just as a side note due to licensing we can't keep the software on these PC's so we load it clean it and then take it off. I am looking for an all inclusive entrprise wide system that would work well with a decient licensing cost.

    Thanks again for any thoughts.
