[access-uk] Re: Microsoft antispy ware

Well, I was certainly under the impression that it did but am willing to be corrected, if that's the case.

I don't think it does give realtime protection does it? It just detects threats when you run a scan as opposed to closing down all your ports to prevent invasions which is what I think the MS tool does.

Spyware Blaster does the same job, preventing your computer from being reinfected by known spyware.

Have you configured the MS tool to give realtime protection? From what I remember you need to do that in the advanced settings and I had to ask a normal person to configure it for me. Since I did that I've had no threats or trojans or anything and also run SpyBot and AdAware everyday. AdAware is set to deep scan and sometimes finds around 15 non-critical threats but thats rare.

Those are the sorts of things I find to, I had 11 yesterday - only 6 hours after the MS ap had run.

Jonathan, Following a post on this list a few days ago, I installed the MS tool yesterday although I run both Ad-aware and Spybotsd regularly.

I ran the MS Anti Spyware this morning and was told that my system
was clear. I then ran Spybotsd and it found 2 threats. Admittedly they
were only Double Click and Avenue A, but I think that it is advisable
not to rely entirely on the MS tool at present. Incidentally with Ad-
aware and Spybotsd, whichever order I run them in, the second usually
finds things that the other has missed.

the MS program hasn't found or dealt with.


Am I the only person this is happening to?
