    Hey, but by the way, I thought that most spy aware programs were viruses themselves in a way.... well, maybe the ones that you buy are ok, but the ones you get for free... you would be boomed by ads and your computer would get slow. And maybe even more vulnerable to viruses.

    Not everything that is free is bad....also many free software (open source) are very good and reliable.

    Try this one,

    Ad aware can be found by doing a search on the web

  6. Pentarix

    Also search for SpySweeper, I like that one the best as it has caught plenty of things that AdAware misses.

    I use SpywareBlaster and it's helped to keep much of the spyware from even penetrating my system. It even updates and blocks spyware for Firefox.

    That's a handy feature, I'll be looking at that one as well, thanks Duke for this useful post! (insert smart-a$$ comment here)

    SPYBOT S&D is great and works well with the Microsoft anitspyware.

    or you could try our online scan at

    It works only with I.E because Firefox is just too good!

    You mean firefox is just so unused. If/when they gain marketshare, that hacks will start going after them, also. In fact, the've already had a few 'bugs', thus that recent update.

    Yes Paul you are so right!

    But I have spent it seems forever a lover of Internet Explorer. I tried Fire Fox last year, didnt like it, tried it again this year and I love it. Tabbed browseing, RSS interaction, it just does the job.

    You are right about the update things. But in the past six months there have only bee really two to my knowledge and I live sat at the thing. How many updates have been released for I.E?

    Its horses for courses. I would certainly try it. Especially if you can just open a new tab to view another website, rather than having to spawn a new Internet Explorer client.

    Cheers Paul!

    Hi All,

    I like webmaster tools as well especialy the online ones such as SilkTide's Site Score

    They also just announced a commercial version which looks very good for web developers, althought I think its a little expensive with prices starting at £2,000

    Anyone know of any other online tools similar?

    I use AdAware SE Personal and Spybot, both are quite good. Though its true that some free antivirus software and spyware make your computer more vulnerable.
