Re: AdAware and Spybot

I heard from someone in the know that IE7 has anti-spyware programs built into 
it.  Does anyone know about this?

  Hi Rick,

  I wasn't asking Julie for general advice about self protection.  I use a 
couple of different anti-spyware programs, a good antivirus program, have a 
hardware router, and overall have everything pretty well together, for a long 
time.  I really was asking a specific question of Juli regarding something she 
had just written to the list,, not an overall question about how to protect my 
computer.  I literally was asking what I asked.

  Thanks for the encouragement to compute carefully, though.  That's a good 
policy for all of us.

  Hi,

  Yes Adaware and SpyBot SD find totally different things and both are 
essintial.   Also Windows Defender will pick up different things as well.  and 
don't forget your Anti-virus software.  These days you can't ever have enough 
scanning programs if your going to travel the internet on a regular basis.

    Hi Julie,

    You say that if you have both Spybot and AdAware, each of them picks up 
stuff that the other misses.  I've heard this said before, but I wonder, how do 
you know?  Do you inspect what each program has caught every time you do a scan 
with one of them, for instance?

    Thanks.

    I don't think either one is better than the other, and having both isn't a 
    bad idea. They both pick up things the others don't. I got my versions from 
    the JFW Lite page, and of course have updated them since, but that's where 
    mine came from originally. Take care.
