Why do you bother keeping a program that gives problems - ask yourself 'do you need that program?'
I cannot understand why so many people have all these extra Anti-everything programs, yet many still seem to be plagued with virus/malware etc.
In the last 8+ years I think I have had just two such problems, in the earlier years, but I can't remember when the last one was. I won't say 'I never have such problems' cos that would probably be fatal, but extremely rare at least!
I use Ad-Aware free, AVG Free, Glary Utilities free, and Sunbelt Pers Firewall plus my routers built-in Firewall. These, and following a routine of safe surfing, seems to do the trick for me.
Diskeeper, WinPatrol Plus and PC Wizard 2008 complete my 'Armoury'.
I hope you find my comments useful .......
