    higuys, i wonder if anyone can tell me is it safe to let spybot fix your problems automatically as i ran it and it found 82 problems. some were in the registry. if it is not safe how do you know which to fix.

    FWIW, I deselect the cookies and the history lists options for SpyBod. If you go to a lot of passworded sites, you'll have to re-enter all your passwords if you let it kill the cookies, and I don't really care about history lists, I shoot anyone I catch at my PC. :D:D

    Same here. I manage my cookies with Cookie Wall.

    I always check the Registry inconsistencies with Spybot, find this very useful.
