Putting Ad-aware, Spy-bot etc. onto CD or CD-RW

  bloo meeny 00:39 16 Apr 2004

Put simply, a friend has just got his first internet connection up & running.

He is completely new to the 'net so on his PC, I want to install.....
Ad-aware, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster , ZoneAlarm firewall and AVG free edition - all of which I use together successfully.

As he is on dial-up (and a time-limited connection), I thought it would be preferable to put these onto a CD/CD-RW to save time & hassle.
I think ZoneAlarm and AVG were on coverdisks (if I can find them) but they might be old versions and not upgradeable.

Anyone advise on if this is possible please?
I am going on Sunday so any replies by Saturday evening, much appreciated ?

download adaware(full install) and also the latest reference update(reflist.ref) from click here

download spybot 1.2 and the latest detection and tools updates from click here.

burn all to a cdr.

install spybot and then install the updates and tools by running the includes.exe and tools.exe on your disc.this will bring it up to date at time of download.

install adaware then unzip the reflist.ref zip(update) and cut and paste it into the lavasoft program file directory and its all up to date(as of the 16 apr anyway)

zonealarm click here also burn to disc.

avg click here fill out the info and download it.you will be sent an email with the serial no. also save this to disc as a text file and cut and paste the serial into avg when installing it.

another good one is spywareblaster click here works well with everything above.

As a lot of my friends are still on dial-up and I'm on BB I burn all programs that I download and sometimes one that someone might want onto CD-R so I can use them at friends houses. Mailwasher, Aida32, dBpowerAMP etc I keep this as a multi-session disc as the programs on it will still work while it is open. HTH TR

Thanks byfordr & TommyRed.

Yes, I'll probably make up a CD-R as you suggest tomorrow evening Tommy. Mind you, I don't want to load my friend up with too much at once (I remember how confusing it was for me at first).

He just knows about 'google' and that's a start :)

I cannot help him further on the phone as I have no details on his pc configuration, other than Win98SE.
