    Periodicaly the webshots desktop will create about a zillion
    webshots spawns/programs on my MS Windoze '98 operating
    system ( I can view them using CNTRL + ALT + DEL). I that point I cannot start another program (out of memory) and I reboot.
    HELP, What can I do short of uninstalling Webshots Desktop?
    TIA

    Get rid of Webshots. (n)

    Download and install AD-AWARE 6.0.181 and SPYBOT - SEARCH & DESTROY 1.2.0, then get rid of all the spyware they find. (y)

    Click the link below and read my article on spyware. It will provide links to download these 2 programs from, and will also provide instructions for setting them up and using them. ;)

    I have webshots but it has no spyware on it or any that I know of.
    Have AD-AWARE and SPYBOT also.

    But I don't have webshots set to do anything on its own. I use it only to download there images.
