Thanks for all your answers. I'm using Spybot and Spyware Guard (Didn't realize I have two of those programs that sound similar). Probably don't need them both. I just ran Ad-aware and I put all the pest in quarantine for now. I'm going to check out wilders.org and see if I can do something for free. Thanks again. ----- Original Message ----- From: Cuffy10@xxxxxxx To: computertalkshop@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, May 03, 2004 4:56 PM Subject: [CTS] Re: Error Message In a message dated 5/3/04 1:49:09 PM Pacific Daylight Time, elaine.gairy@xxxxxxxxxxx writes: Do you use Pest Control Joe? Nope? (I thought you were the one that told me about it) Nope I'm confused. I thought it ran all the time and stopped things from coming into my computer. I have no idea ? I just ran a scan and I had 545 pests. I tried to delete them and it says I have to buy the licensed version. I wouldn't buy anything ! The freebies work as well as the commercial types. I don't mind buying it but will it stop the pests or should I try the site you gave me below. Does Spyblaster do the same thing. Spywareblaster keeps spies from entering I am also running PC-cillin, Never used PC-Cillin ??? Ad-Aware Did you run Adaware to remove the nasties ??? and Spyware Guard. I also use Spybot Search & Destroy. I think you can get that at Wilders.org Yikes .. . to much for me to think about. ----- Original Message ----- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Education is when you read the fine print.
