I have just installed and run A2 upon recommendation. I regularly run Spyware and Ad Aware and have Spywareblaster too. All are regularly updated as are Zone Alarm and AVG.

Ity just came as a bit of a shock to see that A2 had picked the two above up.

I got this definition off Google which made me even more concerned to be honest.

mal´wãr) (n.) Short for malicious software, software designed specifically to damage or disrupt a system, such as a virus or a Trojan horse.

I have Spybot S&D.

Maybe I got these Malware thingys since I last ran it.

like I said it could be something you have downloaded and installed off the Net....trust me it can happen and you may never be aware of it...

so I'm really confused!!

  stalion 21:21 27 Sep 2004

don't panic it can happen to anyone and it does, run spybot and if you still have a problem post back

Malware can be downloaded just by visiting pages, it happens. Just keep yourself protected and run checks frequently.

  Halmer 21:33 27 Sep 2004

Spybot S&D
Ad Aware
Spywareblaster
AVG
Zone Alarm

all up to date.

How many do I need?

You have about the best protection there is, don't worry about it!
