    Hi all, i'm new here, but this site is loaded with so much awesome info--i could spend an entire day reading all of the threads!! Anyways, by all of ur opinions, I'm looking to get my computer super clean, i already have ad-aware and i use Norton for my anti-virus and norton for my firewall. By the looks of it, i probably should be doing some deeper cleaning, just in case!! Please let me know what u all think i should have for a super clean computer!
    thanks in advance!!

    well Spybot Search & Destroy as well would be a good one :) also wouldnt and couldnt hurt to go ahead and post a Highjack This log for some one more experienced than I to look at.

    You can get Highjack This here http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe

    Run Ad-Aware When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and then click Next)...than restart and run Spybot Search & Destroy

    Spybot Seach & Destroy http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

    Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs, Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates, Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows, Click ''Check for Problems''. Anything that needs to be fixed it will show in red and have a green check in the box to the left. Click ''Fix Selected Problems'', Then restart your computer.

    Than run your HJT and save the log and post here for someone with more experience to look at ...you can get Highjack This from here http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe

    Hi tatta5

    I would point out that one anti-spyware program alone cannot do it all.
    Using several of them together, as they each find items the others don't, is the best practice I have found.

    SpywareBlaster is setup once, all you have to do is check for updates once every two weeks and enable protection. No scans are required.

    And do check to make sure you have the latest versions.
