DON'T USE ADD AWARE!!! When you try and remove it they put spyware back on your computer!!!!

Spybot seems to be the best one out there.

Wow I haven't heard that before. Do have a link where I can read more about that problem with ad aware.

Spybot has been my go to ad-ware remover for years.
The only problem I have with it is. I haven't received a update since 3/22/2004. I don't know if this is just a problem I'm having.


Thanks

Spybit hasnt had an update in a long time for me either. Starting to wonder if it still supported???? How could deleting adaware put spyware on my computer? I guess it would be an easy test to delete it then run spyware and see if anything new shows up.
