"The progs are all assocated with Internet Explorer".
At the moment, Firefox IS a safer browser than Internet Explorer (although even FF has it's problems from time to time). It is, of course, no substitute for a good real time AV prog, a good firewall and a selection of AM progs, but it can be considered as an integral part of a prudent security regime.
when AdAware, Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster and McAfee AV didn't. I know that McAfee is an anti virus software but it did find the files...
Thanks for the pointer Curio.
Border Collie, I will look at XoftSpy later thanks.
I have tried Firefox but I prefer IE. I do agree that Firefox is faster but with a 2MB connection it doesn't matter. I suspect that it will only be a matter of time before FF gets targetted by virus and script writers.
