Spyvest install

I've tried loading the program from the cd rom that came with the recent edition of pc advisor, but the install appears to hang on a screen headed clickteam install creator, with the next and back buttons greyed out and only the exit button active. If this is selected, the program does not run. Any ideas? Also is it compatible with ad-aware?

SpyVest is based around AdAware 6, so there isn't much point in running both. It seems to offer some features not found in the free version of 6, but is probably not as capable as the brand new AdAware SE.

As they put it on the CD maybe PCA can be persuaded to run some comparisons.

Thanks. I have the paid for version of ad aware and so will cease to try and install spyvest

You're right, it does not run. TaskManager does not seem to show a Spyvest related process running either.

So is the Spyvest software provided on the PCA CD ok? I have installed it and run it regularly and it seems to pick up spy ware. should i be looking elsewhere? and if so does anyone know of a free version i could download?

Well, SpyVest now runs on my Windows XP Pro system, after I chose to run it in Win2K compatibility mode. And here is how:

1. Do not run SpyVest once installed from PCA disk

2. Goto Start/All Programs/right-click on SpyVest/left-click on Properties/left-click on Compatibility and select to 'Run this program to run in compatibility mode for ' Windows 2000.

3. Run Spyvest

4. Enter username as 'SpyVest'

5. Serial number as on PC Advisor disk (next to Install' button)
