Spyware / Scheduled Tasks

by krvach / May 13, 2006 1:55 PM PDT

Hello, I have seen a couple of articles briefly saying something about automatically running spyware programs. I am currently running both Ad Aware and Spybot. I have figured out Spybots settings for automatic running, but my Ad Aware program is the freeware version so I don't believe I can set that up, correct? What are your suggestions for Spy/Ad Ware programs primarily ones your can run on a schedule? Thanks

whether I use Spybot and ad-adware I prefer to run Webroot. I think that' the best soft out there to take care of your system and keep it spotless.

Ad-aware does not provide any real-time protection.

This program is not a scanner,but a preventer, click HERE.This is a good addition to have.
