love the video!!

the latest one was called Gator, and i also found a program called Xupitor toolbarloader lurking in my programmes files, no idea what it was but Zonealarm asked me if it could have access to the internet, it's now deleted

Hi folks.............been using this click here it has a very good popup blocker which r used to deliver spyware. you can open as many pages as you like if u allow multiple instances of crazybrowser.

Theonewhowatchesoveryou.........have you updated all your protecting progs?

Thos things you mention should be stopped by Spywareblaster. Make sure it's up to date and note there is a new version just issued. You may wish to install Spybot S&D as well.

Don't become too involved in looking these things out at the expense of doing anything useful on your machine!;-))

ad-aware is not due to be updated until next month, spywareblaster is upto date.


how many of these things can you have installed??? it will get to the point where my hard drive is full of protection programms and nowwhere to load the really usefull things like games!!! LOL

Funny that a lot of girls say the same thing!!

Someone asked the other day when it will be that the protection programs in your computer is bigger than useful ones.

I've got AVG, Outpost firewall, Spywareblaster, Spywareguard, AdAware (out of date), Spybot S&D, Startpage Guard, RegistryProt. That should be enough but I'm pretty sure tomorrow will bring something else!
