As i am a newbie, just a little confused, in how can i have microsoft antispyware and macafee, then start having problems so i unistall macafee, and download a freebie called Stop-sign threat, as i am now running a scan with this new site and up pops a notice saying that i have in mirosoft antispyware a trojon
how is this possible as i thought microsoft got rid of things like that

It's probably picking up something MS Antispyware has `caught` and quarantined safely. Personally I would trust MS Antispyware more than Stop-Sign. Look for `stop-sign` on this page; click here

AdAware click here
SpyBot S&D, click here
cws

And tehn as a protection, click here
SpywareBlaster

I'm a little confused here, you deleted macafee, was this the antivirus program? If what do you now have because Microsoft anti spyware is just that - antispyware - it is not the same as an antivirus program.

i deleted macafee cos it cost so much money and only had it one year now they want me to pay again, so i have a free anitvirus and thank you everybody for your replies, i am understand more as i go along, and maybe one day i will be able to advize lol

Just to confirm with Totally-braindead,are you using Microsoft Antispy has your antivirus protection.....
If so,he is correct...Its NOT an Antivirus program,only antispyware/Malware help.
