After reading this thread, I got the paid version of Pest Patrol. I've had so many problems I wouldn't know where to begin. Anyway, I also have Spybot. Just before downloading Pest Patrol, I ran Spybot first. It found 12 items on my computer which I then deleted. Okay, I then downloaded Pest Control and ran it. Guess how many items!!! 161 on my computer!!!! That's a big performance difference! I'm SOLD!

Thank you for the LINK for Ad-Aware! How about one for Spybot, now? praise

The more I use these programs, the more I have to scratch my head... One minute everything's fine, and the next minute -- 161 invaders! eek

I recently discovered that my updated Spy Sweeper program was corrupted -- and I'd never have known that, except for it suddenly not working at all. I re-downloaded the updated program; and it immediately found lots of new adware/spyware. I wonder if the creeps are able to corrupt our detector programs? scared
