Despite the high cost of living, have you noticed how it remains so popular.

The very first time I ran Ad Aware, it found all kinds of stuff. But since then, it and Spybot seem to find only the tracking cookies that I would expect to pick up in normal web surfing. Easier for me to delete the cookies manually. I still run each occasionally just to make sure nothing else is lurking.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong,
enough sorrow to keep you human and
enough hope to make you happy.

I downloaded it and ran it twice....found a WHOLE bunch of stuff Spybot didn't get.  I think it has to do with the programs I am letting in through zone alarm....still figuring out which ones are bad and which ones aren't. 

Thanks Emmo

Thanks Emmo. I already had an older version of that on my PC. I think I DLed that from someones post on WTB. Same as the others have said. I can run the AOL program and Spybot, but this gets run last because it always pics up more things.
