Thumbs up Need a good SpyWare proggy?? Here's Bill Gates beta ver.

I been using this for about 1 week and have found some SpyWare that others did not (AdWare) find. It also has some nice additional features
  • TRACKS ERASER - cleans your tracks from places you've been.
  • BROWSER HIJACK RESTORE - (self expainitory) recover from malicious hijackings of your browser

Microsoft AntiSpyware click on the CONTINUE button and then follow instructions. At one point it will give display a 'password' ((ala Ticketmaster when you get concert tickets)) to enter and finally the DL'd file will appear. Let me know what you think.

BTW Bill Gates owns a few nice vessels ... just to keep this boating related

Thanks for the reminder. I was going to install it last week. Found two threats that my current scanner missed!

i have been running it for about a month now. seems to be working pretty good. I also have it scheduled to run every night around 2am.

Best part if some spyware downloads and tries to modify your registry, Bills program will ask you if it is OK to let this happen.

And actually this is not Bills program. another company made this and was going to introduce it to the market, and Bill bought them out.

Wow, perfect timing.
I was just going to ask opinions on this tonight since I just installed XP Pro on my desktop PC and lost AdAware in the install. Never had a problem with AA, but maybe just didn't know it???? I'll be watching this topic, so post results.

I have add aware but don't remember to use it all the time. This ran last night and found a bunch of stuff, I OK'd it to delete everything. This is my home office computer I sure hope it did not delete anything important, I will let you know.

What has been happening to me is when I check my internet history a bunch of sites show up that I never looked at, this happens during the day when I am the only one at the computer this bugs me. I am hoping that tracking software clears that up

HiPerf I saw that too. I haven't been notifed of anything trying to modify my registry .. yet. But sounds excellent. I had that 'HiJack-This or That' phucker reak havoc about a year ago, frustrated the chit out of me. Learned a bit on registry editing and what not, but would rather have not!

RE: Bill's purchase ... And why not?! What couldn't he buy?? Who was the original developer? ,,,, now basking in the sun on some island he just bought, looking out on his Sunseeker and Cigarette dingy peacefully bobbing in the current
