But first, CounterSpy is an antispyware tool and doesn't claim to target TROJANs. http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm lists it and it is on the good list.

-> I'd do the usual and keep my antivirus up to date then get the second opinion scan with HOUSECALL. For spyware the usual list is Adaware, Spybot, Cwshredder, Stinger since no one tool gets them all.

Next you ask: "Would I be safer running Foxfire when in wireless operation and in an unprotected mode such as connecting up with someone else's open wireless system?" I've read that Foxfire has less security "holes" than MS IE.

-> This area is a NASTY one. Read why I would NEVER perform any financial transactions over other people's WIFI at http://www.cnn.com/2005/TECH/internet/01/20/evil.twins/

I hope you understand why I will never use other than my connections for such purposes.
