Spybot, Cwshredder, Adaware are all FREE tools you can download for FREE. The key word is FREE.
If you get ripped off, then hopefully it's just a token payment for the education process about this.
The tools are easy to find with http://www.google.com and in the Security Forum, direct links are often noted.
Have clumsily lost activation no.s after purchasing spybot software from eblocs.com. on 19th june this year. i have sent requests to almost every contact dept. at eblocs.com but as yet i have not been able to elicit a response from them. anyone got any suggestions? (helpful that is)
