The only problem with installing a large range of spyware/adaware programmes, is the fact that some items will be picked up on one programme and not by others. This is due to the way the programme makers update their programmes on what they observe as necessary dangers.Not a bad thing, but it can get confusing and worrying as to what is good or bad, or "why did that slip through".

The same applies to Norton products, some people wouldn't use anything else, whilst other people (like myself) are very content with the free anti downloads with regular updates.

what you say is correct, all the different spyware apps have different methods,but boy would we be lost without them. thanks spuds. ger
