I just have 214 adware.... can somone please explain that to me!!!
You and your porn sites. It's a problem but the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
yea i had like 300+ one time.. gotta stop with the porn sites
I cleaned up my brother's computer a few days ago, and there was something like 290+
Dudes!!! All I do is work, now, hahaa.... no porn for me, I have NO idea where it came from!??!?!
Seriously... any advice?
Get firefox... it's spyware proof
I would, but im not sur how it works!
There is a step-by-step instruction manual in Reality Check by Boots, I believe... do a search :wink:
You love that shit now, don't you?
214 is nothing to worry about if it's all cookies or something. It also really depends on the type of file found. The only ones that really matter are the executeables and possibly registry keys because they can make your computer slow and crashtastic. Cookies adaware deems as spyware are mostly just tracker cookies used to grab usage stats.
Also, I would reccomend running somthing like spybot search and destroy to get a second opinion on your system.
Spybot S&D is much better than adware. Adware Has its own spyware that it puts on your comp.
No it doesn't.It ads fake spyware to replace a few out there so that the programs that use them will not become inoperable after removing the spyware. Didn't you notice that when you install spybot s&D after adaware is installed it tells you exactly that.
Spybot is good,but it is good to use both because there are a few things that Adaware finds that spybot does not.
Meh ... I do think I remember something of the sorts ... spyware is spyware ... I don't have any programs that use spyware anymore anyways ... and yes ... firefox is the shit
I use both, regardless.... the "spies" just love my computer, must be interesting place
when i run adaware for customers, the average is about 400-500. its all the tracking cookies that companies are putting into their webpages that is the problem. does not have to be porn sites.
