Is this a record?

Back from demucking the friends' computer and here are the statistics.
AVG found seven trojans, Adaware found 298 critical objects and Spybot found 76 problems ... it took four hours to sort it all out and install SP2.

bah...those are statistics for softboys. Come back when you have found 3800 incorrect registry entries and 1457 entries in Adaware

Probably not but well done and I hope they gave you a decent dinner!

Not bad. I have found more on spybot and adaware - but avg was clear. Not at the same time but then again i did once 300+ objects in adaware is my record.

If you w ant to win this then get a kids pc as they download everything!!!!

ha ha ... yes, we had a jolly tasty roast chicken dinner. Well worth the effort. Now all they need to do is upgrade the memory and buy a new mouse!!!

I have just found out rather belatedly that DAP is responsible for adware on my computer so I have reluctantly removed it because I rather liked it. What do you suggest that I replace it with?

douglas1973: I suggest you replace your dialup with broadband! the accelerators are rubbish.

  douglas1973 23:53 14 Nov 2004

Removed norton 4 from a computer, installed avg6/adaware and spybot, avg found over 26,000 infected files, adaware found over 6,000 and spybot found over 800, thats my best record to date.
