Hi to all, I use the above programme along with AVG and Sygate and they all do a good job as far as keeping the baddies from getting to me is concerned. I get quite a few Data minor spy's putting their packets on my comp, and they all seem to be the same ones, every time I do a scan these little devils come back is there a way to stop these little swines getting to me so that they are intercepted before they can enter my comp, thanks for your help,

I get pop up messages from a site that tells me I can't stop them as they are messages coming through ~Windows messenger and the only way to get rid of them is by buying there product. I am assuming they are harmless. My firewall does not seem to notice them
