From:

| What is better? Thanks

Ad-aware SE is for NT based OS' and Win9x/ME and no longer automatically updates. You have
to manually update that version. At some point it is expected all support for Ad-aware SE
will be dropped and won't even allow manual updates.

Ad-aware 2007 and the latest version, Ad-aware 2008, are for Win2K and above only due to
their dependency on NT Services.

Note also that the "Pro" versions perform "On Access" scanning to prevent being infected
with adware/spyware while the "SE" or personal versions perform only "On Demand" scanning
and remove not prevent adware/spyware infections.

I'm sorry but I don't understand fine. I have read the specifications
but I don't understand if Ad-Aware 2008 has an integrated antivirus.
I'm using NOD32. Have I unistall it?
Thanks for info.

THANKS very much for your advice. Yes I like to use a very good
antispyware software. I get many spywares every days and I need one
very good.
I usually use Spybot - Search & Destroy and AD-Aware.
Do you think SuperAntiSpyware is better than AD-Aware?
thanks

Then you are NOT practicing Safe Hex!

The *best* protection is YOU... not software.

Sure!!!
I have just done a scan with SuperAntiSpyware and it have found 108
infected files, My surfing in Internet was very slow and now it is OK.


>But why don't you keep Spybot along with SAS and MBAM?

I am afraid it slow down my surfing in Internet.
In your opinion is it better SpywareTerminator 2.2.1.433 or Spybot
along with SAS and MBAM?

THANKS FOR YOUR PRECIOUS NEWS.

Are you using Internet Explorer? If so try using Firefox. There are many
add-ons to increase protection (NoScript and AdBlocker to name 2)

Unless you are using "TeaTimer",spybot is not a real-time scanner.
SAS pro has a real-time scanner-the free version does not.
MBAN does not have a real-time scanner either.

You should look into using a sandbox while you are surfing.

look-take the easy way out. Create a clean install image. After playing
around a week or so, just restore to your clean image.
