Good news, agree with dazza39, a good program.

I've uninstalled it - it seemed to be blocking my internet access! Very strange.

My son installed this on his lap top and found it was always running in the background. He could not turn it off, nor could he find an east way to stop it loading at startup, so he uninstalled it.
While it was on, it did not find anything that AdAware had not captured.
I was going to try it, but will not bother now.

Please note I'm not saying it is no good, I'm saying my son didn't like its foibles and that it didn't do anything AdAware couldn't do!

Skeletal. Tools>Settings>Real-Time Protection has a tick box for "Enable the Microsoft Anti-Spyware Security Agents on startup (recommended). That might do the trick.
