    this thing is only 256k big. ideal for sticking on a floppy for other people to clean the crap off their systems.

    microsoft are actually putting some effort into cleaning up their users systems.

    One question...
    is it better than adaware, spybot, spysweeper?
    or
    is it simply "another" addon security program we endlessly add on to our systems

    I feel no urge traitorize those that have "Freely" helped me in the past.

    thing is..when a Moderator of a Tech forum Promotes a software of this kind, i feel compelled to comply however i am not compelled as of yet...

    awaiting results

    It's probably better at detecting worms than spyware etc.

    Sounds a bit like McAfee's Stinger.

    (to make up for his h4r5hn33s with teh delete button)
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
