For some reason it wont download-says bad checksum. Had this before tho, no doubt it will be ok later(I hope)!!

I think it was your suggestion to someone on the forum, but have just downloaded Spybot and it found lots of files which I have deleted. There was another programme you recommended at the same time, but can't remember it.

Just makes you think though, there must be millions of computer owners out there who have never heard of spybot and have minimal or no knowledge of virus checkers or firewalls or any other protective measures. How wide open they are to any exploitation or attack. I was just fortunate to find this forum.

Spybot search and destroy is well worth downloading. It sorts out and deletes spyware which your firewall and AV programs will not stop. These spyware programs can transmit information to their originators as to which sites you regularly visit. Also well worthwhile is Spyblaster. This does not do scans but stops spyware from downloading in the first place. If you have both and do a weekly scan with spybot, this will eliminate the odd one which spyblaster may have missed. Both programs offer regular free downloads of new dangerous websites, which are then blocked or removed from your computer.
