Over the last week when I have run adaware there are some files/programs folders it will not delete, but they are spyware. Does someone have the link to download Spybot i think it is called???????
cheers, Irene

A better one is Spy Sweeper. I have used Ad-aware and Spyboot and they are good but spy sweeper is even better but the free trial is only for 30 days. A very good site to go to is to find out about all of these.

thank you so much Kathryn - even if I just use the 30 day free trial to get rid of the unriddable, that would be great. Cheers and Happy New Year

Hi Irene.
Please make sure you download Spybot search and destroy.
NOT SPYBOT... REPEAT.... NOT SPYBOT......,as it contains a worm.
It really is confusing, and annoying that there are virus's contained in sites so similar in name.

Carol, I downloaded SpySweeper in the end, and it got rid of a lot more then what Adaware did. It appears so good, I am tempted to subscribe after the 30day trial. I had 2 address bars - one just 'appeared' and I could never remove it, and that has finally gone, no pop up boxes. So thanks for everyone's help. Cheers, Irene

Hi there,

Go to com.

I got my spyware off there plus they have loads of others to try out.
