Thanks De.  Using both Adaware and Spybot S&D I guess I keep mine machine clean 
enough.  I usually run them about once a week or when I think of it.  It's 
amazing how much stuff gets in, in just a few days....  Bill

Lavasoft's AdAware and Spybot Search and Destroy are very similar but I've 
heard each will sometimes catch something the other one missed.  Don't know if 
that's true....    Bill 

    I clean alot of machines ( folks just do not understand spyware ). I have 
used alot of different programs, and each program sees different spyware. I 
really would like to see a program that would remove "ALL" rather than having 
to run program after program until I find all of the spyware. 
    The last one that I used that seems good is  Spy Sweeper from 
www.webroot.com  This one you get it for 30 days trial then they want money. 
This one runs just like you antivirus and continues to scan to prevent spyware. 
   I see a site for comparison of spyware removers at www.toptenreviews.com. 
   I did read an article a time ago ( from ZDnet I think ) that said do not use 
these programs ( Spy Wiper & Spy Deleter ) they like to install the spyware, 
not remove it.
