Lavasoft Spywareblaster

AVG antivirus


Ewido anti-malware.

Diskeeper lite.

Just thought I'd mention it.

Not bad recommendations, but as I'm ever the nitpicker, I'll point out that Lavasoft don't do Spywareblaster, they do Ad-Aware. Spywareblaster is from Javacool click here

My apologies. Thanks for pointing out my error.

Javacool Spywareblaster is what I meant.

The list also misses out Search and Destroy, Avast!, MS AntiSpyware or Defender and ZoneAlarm, to name but a few...:-)

MP3 Tag, a great tagger. Spywareblaster, CCleaner. Winamp, MSN Live Messenger, XP Anti-Spy, Screamer Radio.

I would like to add Irfanview (excellent image viewer and small in size), zonealarm firewall and Google Earth (best waste of time).

...Picassa 2 from Google for all those digital camera owners..

  Crash 09:46 07 Jul 2006
