    There is an old saying, "don't believe everything you read." Also, "buyer beware." Take a hint.

    "SpySweeper," a top rated anti-spyware program offers a free trial. Use a search engine to obtain the download site. Run it and see what comes up. I did that and it found no malware on my system. It could have indicated otherwise, but it didn't. Knowing how well it is rated, I believe its evaluation of my system was honest. Furthermore, I had every reason to believe I was "clean." You can do the same with "NOD32," which is considered the best of the best anti-spyware programs. I am running that, too, on a trial basis. So far so good, as I expected.

    CORRECTION to my immediately preceding post: "Nod32" is an anti-VIRUS program.
