"Thread stuck".....good timing. I see Mozilla made national news in US tonight regarding its Firefox browser. This was [likely] due to the overwhelming response & reception the browser has received form "everyday people" like me [you know, dummies, noobs etc].
[Hopefully the hackware/spyware folks will keep focused on IE]
BTW, user "notewriter" made an impression on me with post #2 of this thread: "Though I had minimal luck with Spybot and Ad-Aware I have to say that once I started using Mozilla browser rather than IE I had zero issues. Check out Firefox for Windows.."
As crazy as it sounds, I've been on the web for two days now, scanned w'spysweeper & received ZERO problems identified!
[I like the simple, traditional look of Firefox & tabbed browsing too].
