Spyware has become a part of our life. What you can do to avoid adware and viruses is be a smart browser. Only go to websites you trust, and you will avoid lots of spyware. If you want a more advanced solution, try a host file, which will allow you to block out advertising sites. I use the one at www.someonewhocares.org/hosts.

Ewido is a good trojan hunter but is designed for Windows XP.

This member is running 98SE he would be better off running a-square.

Spyblaster is right for his system

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
