[FONT=Arial][SIZE=7]THANKS. I have been absolutely horrified by the epidemic of spy and carp** ware that i have discovered since upgrading pc and internet connection. I initially found spybot through a magazine and downloaded it. fantastic. Then i came across the adawarereport web site and gave the Giant 15 day trial. It found things that spybot wasnt finding-cookies etc. That was fantastic until Dec 16 when it became impossible to contact them or purchase th eproduct. Dont know if i will considering the new owners. From that same site i chose to try Aluria, which seemed ok - until i read some of the things that are found on this site, their assoc with whenU. I am VERY thankful to all responsible and contributing to keep privacy a premium.
QUESTION.I uninstalled Aluria and it tried to persuade me to leave quite a few files behind. Some had a .dll end. Is this normal or is this an attempt to remain behind for who knows what?
PLAN.I have since finding this site and being confident of my choices installed spyblaster, and am considering adaware se to go with the spybot.
