Spyware Terminator - best free software

  pookie 21:05 16 Mar 2008


I downloaded this from the '40 best free software' link and seems to work well.

Only thing is that in order for the 'Web security guard' to work you have to install a 'Crawler' toolbar. If you install the toolbar and then remove it from add/remove programmes then the web security guard goes as well.

Is this correct or have i downloaded a corrupt version?

i found web crawler trouble some and deleted it, this also takes out web guard. but you can doiwnload mcafee site advisor to replace web guard. most AV programs now watch your surf anyway and warn if a nasty tries to install.

i know that only have 1 firewall and 1 anti virus running but any reason why i can't have spyware terminator (with resident shield) and spyware blaster both on pc to stop spyware getting through or would that cause conflicts / be overkill?

with spyware you can have several on the pc, but i do not have more than 1 scan at the same time.

i too have spywareblaster, SAS, adaware2007 & spybot.

do you find the spywareblaster shield better than spyware terminator as a blocker?

i used to use spyware blaster all the time but have changed to spyware terminator after it got such a good write up within the 40 best free programmes article

but act in completely different ways. You will have no problem using both at the same time.
