I download this today and on running it my Antivirus (Trend Micro) spyware detector keeps popping up that it has detected spyware and not allowing access, any help please

Try getting a copy of ...........adaware and also spybot, both obtainable free from the internet, or from quite a few Pcadvisor CD's... What one misses the other will normally find. Good Luck

If you have XP this is a handy page to have. Scroll down for Spybot and Adaware downloads.

try disabling trendmicro, install the ms antispyware and restart trendmicro. Ensure that you have got the real thing off the ms website - it may be a spyware prog masquerading as the real thing, although I doubt it. If it is the real thing it wont do any harm, and u should be fine disabling ur av 4 a minute or two.

Have both as aware and spybot, but this new one from Microsoft found loads of stuff that the others didn't however you have to be careful what you delete. I think I've found the problem now Thanks
