    site for Spyware Blaster
    http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/sbdownload.html

    Used that one last night. Free search but $20 for destroy and it didn't work.

    Definitely doesn't help. Let us know how it ends up going.

    If you see a hand reach out of your monitor and try to grab at your wallet, run.

    I think I've solved it. 30 minutes and no pop-up. Downloaded the Stopzilla scan this AM and it picked up 3 more Trojan infected lines and 13 other little problems that Spyware Blaster and the other apparently missed. This one was $10 to erase. At first I didn't think it worked. Since the pop ups continued. I got PO'd so I uninstalled it like the others. Surprise surprise.....no more pop ups - but only after uninstalling.

    By the way in middle of all this another trojan was found lurking inside. Trojan.malscript!html.

    I can't believe all of the crap that was inside with Norton Anti-virus running and the NA scans didn't catch any of this stuff.

    I use to use Norton but got tired of the constant paying for updates and renewals. I tried Mcavee and come to the conclusion it couldn't filter coffee, much less computer bugs. A friend suggested AVG, a freeware program. I have had no problems in the 4 years I have been running it.

    As far as spyware programs go, it seems to me you need to have two or three to catch everything. (Or at least, hopefully, almost everything.)

    Actually, I buy Norton SystemWorks which includes the (almost all) anti-virus because it has the optimizer which I schedule to run weekly and some other features to keep me down the straight on narrow. I can install it on 6 systems, plus reinstalls when needed, so the cost per unit is $10 a year. I buy it new every year and reinstall rather renewing each system at $30/per. It also has a neat little one button clean-up of internet history and temp files to keep those little things from bogging down the speed.

    How do you keep your hardrive from getting discombobulated from adding and deleting files, folders and programs if you use AFG?

    I saw the AVG freeware download, but they also offer a variety of pay for programs. What's the difference?

    I run one of the malware programs each night before I shut down.
    I use a program (also free) called "CleanUp!" to get rid of junk. I run it about once a month. After I run it, I defrag the hard drive. Seems to be working pretty well for me.
    CleanUp! is at:
