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

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
