I'll agree here ... I run it ... along with Adaware and SB S&D on about a hundred machines and have had good luck. ;-D

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I'll try to download a few of those programs today.


Though I think Madscott might have the easiest solution.

Also, one last question. If you download one program, will it catch things that others don't?

Right now I'm running McAfee, Ad-Aware, and Spybot. I'm just wondering if I should bother with more anti-virus/spyware programs.

No, I do it every day but the viruses keep coming back. One time I scanned and it couldnt get rid of 32 viruses.

I should add this too - do not run more than 1 Anti-Virus program. They will conflict and I hear is isn't good.
