    Well, I don't know about the other... But, I stand behind Adaware. It has worked very well for me. And solved alot of other peoples problems like what you are having now. I never herd of the first ones name ever even come up in conversations with people online.

    Thumbs up

    Finch,
    Spybot S&D has an option that you can check that runs Spybot when you start your system. It's under system settings. Check the box that says "Run program once at next system startup". Then reboot your computer. It will take a lot longer for Spybot to run it's checks than it does when Windows is running. It least it does on my computer. Also, make sure you have the newest updates. One more thing, there's nothing wrong with having both Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D on your computer. As Andrew says, it's a good program. I found it more intuitive to use than Spybot S&D. You may like it better.

    Did you click the "Check for problems" button to run the spyware search? After Spybot does a search it will either tell you "Congratulations...." or present a list of things that you can have it delete. Be careful to not delete the file with your "Autocomplete" data. Else you'll have to manually re-enter your user name and passwords the next time you log on to the forum and other sites that use this type of information. You can have Spybot exclude this from it's search (right click it to bring up options). You can also exclude cookies from sites that allow you to log in automatically. You want to keep the TerraForum cookies as they keep track of where in a topic you last read so that you don't have to start at the first page of a topic each time you check the topic. If you have more questions feel free to ask. I've screwed up my machine enough times I should be able to at least tell you what you don't want to do!

    As BCK hinted at, you hit the wrong button. Immunize can be useful in preventing problems but it isn't what you are looking for.
    Start spybot in 'easy mode'.
    Click on search for updates.
    When that is done click on 'search and destroy' on left side.
    At bottom of screen click on 'search for problems'.

    That'll fix it.

    Yes, they save your username and password so you don't have to log in every time you come back.

    You'll get them back when you browse the forums. You'll just have to log in manually the first time and all the topics you check will open on the first post instead of the last (most resent) post.
