hi - sorry if this has been covered. i have avg anti-virus which i check for updates everyday. i have been reading about spyware and adware that may be lurking and that a very high % of machines have these without detection. is there any free, easy to use, programs that detect and remove spyware or adware? do i need to worry about these?
hi - just as an update - ran ad aware and i had 5 little beasties on my pc - i got rid of these. out of coincidence i downloaded advanced uninstaller 6 the day before. one option was to check and fix corrupt registry items - when i ran this it showed that i had many ranging from light to severe. i didn't do anything with them. but when i removed the ad aware nasties and then ran ad uninstall regisrty cleaner/fixer the reg cleaner/fixer didn't detect anything
