Thank you very much ChrisRLG for your imput.
I have a²free version which I run regularly. I have Trojun Hunter,but my 30days are running out.
What I really wanted to know was-does this Micosoft Antispyware prog. cover Trojans.-
I am not sure if "Malware" covers these. Thanks.

I cannot yet recommend the M$ anti-malware. It is still beta and beta means 'does not yet work'.
Lots of my friends in the anti-malware industry are assisting M$ in getting it right. But its not there yet.

In general there is overlap between:-

Anti-Virus to Trojan Killers to Anti-Malware programs.

At present my recommendations are in the library of my own website/forum (its new) found at click here

As said Ms spy ware is still beta witch is probably why i had errors with it and uninstalled it but when the tests are done and it is released i will try it again if its still free that is.

I have been using AdAware & Spybott for nealry a year. MS's program found some that they had missed. But then I found alink to this website.

click here

I installed the prog & it found another 11 items the previous 3 had missed. Some in particular I have had problems with in the past, which I thought I had got rid of. The only snag is, it is a scan only program.
But there is some good news, when I un-installed it, I was directed to a questionaire as to Why!
I was then offered by e-mail a 1 day licence.
If you then click on the purchase button after installing the 1 day licence you are presented with a screen, offering the product with a $10 discount at $29.99 for 1 year updates or for $49.99 3 years updates. With the £ to $ rate being in our faour this represents good value. I will definately be purchasing this item.
