me again.
varoious scans i have on board ie adaware/spybot/etc produce a scanof about 73,000 files, tonight ran pest patrol scan and it scanned 103,000 files, this seems to me to be an alarming difference with as appears loads of loopholes, any ideas folks?

30,000 temp internet files, cookies and so on since last scan maybe... how long since the 73,000 reading?

Maybe they scan different files or check zip / cab archives and count them in different ways.
