E-mail messages & MS Windows warning.

  infoseeker 19:35 05 Sep 2004

Hi all out there. I invariably get an E-mail and have had a supposed warning advise from MS via a window that pops up at various times when I am connected to the internet saying that I may have 'Spyware' on my PC, and to get it erradicated/monitored I am offered to download the programme to handle this intrusion. My Question is - is this legit? hoping that someone can advise. Take care Y'all.

I doubt that it is genuine; there are some good programs out there which will remove spyware at no cost. It might be worth running one or two of them: click here
AdAware click here
SpyBotS&D click here
CWS click here
