    Well I used to use spychecker.com.. but I havent needed it in a while.. now I could use the handy spyware lookup.. but the site is gone.. Does anyone know what happened to it? If it moved somewhere? Or if its gone does someone know of a reliable place to lookup programs and check if they're spyware?
    I think its time to update my bookmakrs...

    I am having alot of trouble downloading a large file, cause my isp is unreliable, I need a program that can resume downloads.. but most of them are loaded with spyware and the likes.. If anyone can sugguest a good one of those that would help too. I need one that doesnt install over my system ya know? I like downloading how it is, but sometimes with big files I might need to use an application that will help me resume if I get kicked

    Any help with either of those would be greatly appreciated, I know this isnt the best forum to post it under, but since it was regarding spyware I thought it would be best to check here..

    I have a suggestion for your first question. Go to www.lavasoftusa.com and download Lavasoft. It's a free program that automatically scnas your computer for spyware and removes it. They release periodic updates too, just like virus scanning software, so you can always be up to date!

    I have it :) Thanks though.. I use it alot.. I'd rather see if something was listed as loaded with spyware before hand, just for good measure though.

    Eddie,

    I have not used this site in months and when I just tried to log on I got the same message as you.

    Sorry, don't know what happened to it.
