    Hey guys ive been using Spyhunter to get all of my spyware and what not off my computer, and it has been doing a great job, and my computer even runs faster (or maybe that was the extra ram i dropped into it...1609 in total :) ) but i just cant get rid of this nagging sense that maybe it is not as it seems, anyone else use it? or can testify against it?

    One thing, I see you have SpyHunter. If you haven't paid for it uninstall it. It is a waste of time and money. Adaware and Spybot are better for free.[/QUOTE]

    Again Adaware and Spybot will do a better job and they are free.........


    Consider installing the following:

    SpywareBlaster v2.6.1 and SpywareGuard v2.2, to prevent Active-X drive-by installations, as well as provide real-time browser hijacking protection: http://www.wilderssecurity.net/index.html

    IE-SPYAD, a registry file that adds a long list of known "sites" to the Restricted Sites of your Internet Explorer: http://www.staff.uiuc.edu/~ehowes/resource.htm
