    Big def file available today.
    After I get the new defs, I always hit 'immunize' and I get maybe 8-14 new items. Tonight I got 744 new Products blocked... :eek:

    Either the spyware fols were busy this week or Spybot was slow in updating the past few months. Download now.

    ALso had a new Ad-Aware tonight too.
    I hit these nightly

    I downloaded XoftSpy and it found stuff Spybot and Ad-Aware didn't. It's what I use now.

    That's the problem I find too Valk and that's why I use both.

    I like them because of their reputations as I had tried a few no name freebies that found and removed stuff I needed.

    One that I tried caused about 8 apps to stop working after it found 'spyware' in their folders... It wasn't spyware, It just didn't recognize it.

    I've now learned to look up every file via Google before any of these programs delete them.
