I'm popup free. Using IE. And spyware free...
Well, now anyway
. On my desktop, did an experiment the other day before going to Idaho, letting some spyware in on purpose so I could test between Ad-Aware and Microsoft Anti-Spyware to see what one could pick up but not the other. Was spyware free before that, finished getting it all cleaned up after I got back Sunday (had to leave before I finished.)
(read: I was really bored that night)
Out of the lot I let in, GIANT Anti-Spyware picked up a lot that Ad-Aware SE missed. Hmm... Ad-Aware picked up 245 items (including cookies), and MS Anti-Spyware picked up another 100 odd items.
I let in a lot more than I expected... I got carried away
... particularly disturbing though was when I booted up on Sunday I got a message in the corner of my screen saying "Norton Antivirus is waiting for a scan of 'pI5hVV.exe'"
But as I said I was spyware free before that, and I think spyware free again now... Will do some last checking tonight.
