My friend has had her computer redone, HDD reformatted, Win98SE reinstalled, all other programmes installed. NTL BB installed and running. Complete up-to-date Adaware, Spybot, Spywareblaster and AVG all running.
She ran AVG, Adaware and Spybot yesterday (Thursday). AVG found 2 Viruses which were successfully put in the vault and subsequently deleted. Adaware found 171 new objects, also deleted. Spybot found nothing.
This morning (Friday) Adaware has found 148 new objects and Spybot was again clear.
Is there something not working properly on this computer. I have exactly the same setup as her and I tried Adaware and Spybot both of which gave an all clear signal.
I have Outpost Firewall running on mine and as far as I know she does not have a firewall running, but isn’t Spywareblaster supposed to stop intrusions from getting in. It seems to work OK on my Computer. Have just run Adaware again on my computer and this time it has come up with 26 negligible objects. What is a negligible object?
a very amall piece of software that runs quickly but what it does is incredible. I havn't had amy more problems.
Basically it lists all programmes that download or install things on your PC. You just tick the boxes of the ones you don't want, click go, job done.
If you don't understand the log just copy it and paste it here, we'll tell you what to leave alone. However I deleted the entire list and all I lost was my homepage and the Google Toolbar, easily reinstalled.
