Carol asks…

Spyware in the system?

Someone has suggested that I use “.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html” to look for spyware on my system.

Does anyone know about this. Is it safe to run. How can one be sure of safty of a program that is suppose to help you, but you know nothing about.

At least I read and hear about AdAware, and spybot. I run them both. But, I know that something is going on that these programs can not pick up.

The most important thing to keep in mind, regardless of which anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware and firewall you use is to keep it UPDATED, just as it is important to make sure you have all windows critical and security updates + http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us

Note: The way I have mine set is to only notify me that updates are availiable, but to not download them automaticaly. Then I can check to be sure I get just the ones I want. I then click on “custom”, and after the updates have been downloaded I look them over to see which ones I want, then disconnect from the net, disable firewall and anti-virus program, and then install the updates, and then re-enable the firewall and anti-virus programs before reconnecting to the net.
