Hi ya.

My friend's computer was seriously infected with spyware, so i nstalled spybot and adaware. Adaware had removed 400 something things on the full scan and spybot removed around 90 things. But there is still annoying banners and such. I told him to just run the recovery console, but he doesnt want too, so i want to know if theres any other free scanners that are good also, not only for his computer but for my computers.

Thanks

check out www.majorgeeks.com and download the spyware utilities you want. if your friend is using IE for his webrowsing, tell him/her to switch to mozilla firefox as its a way better web browser.

Try Pest Patrol... It will cost him some cash, but it is really good. I use it and Ad-aware and my computer is almost ALWAYS adware/spyware free. :D

install SpywareBlaster. It doesn't get rid of spyware/adware, but will help prevent it from being installed in the first place.

...and use firefox. :D
