    Is it possible to prevent spyware and malware from getting into your computer? It seems that it is always the same stuff that I regularly remove with SpyBot, AdAware, A-squared etc...I use Spywareguard and Spywareblaster and still these nasties appear! Am I going to have do this as long as I use the internet? Thanks.

    Yes, they are of the 'tracking cookie' type, with a 'MRU list' type as well. Thanks for the 'Hosts' site.
    Do you have any comments about Microsoft's Windows XP AntiSpyware (Beta) software?
