Spyware Scan's

  J B 17:23 03 Mar 2006

Just curious, I scan with Adaware and Spybot whenever I receive updates, however I do a full system scan with Windows Defender every day. Do you all think that I am going over the top where defender is concerned or do I have it about right? J.B.

That's pretty much what I do (automatic scan with Defender) and I don't think I'm being over the top.

I'm the same with Windows defender, and about once a week a full system scan with Ewido after updating it.I don't feel it's OTT

I scan once a month and never find anything but I also use a lot of common sense.

Something that the AV makers, firewall developers and anti-spyware makers rely on the general public having a lack of. ;-))
