I always just use ad-ware just do a search, there's loads of download sites.

I don't know if it's the best one out there though, one of the techies on here may be able to advise of something else.

lavasoft - adaware free for personal use - manual updates tho BUT very good - just remember to do it often [upgrade ;) ]

get rid of Norton and go for AVG free when u can - as it can sometimes slow a system up on it' sown - kinda goes into a checking self checking cycle..........

hey here's a link too

I use Adaware 6 Pro, but this aint free, unless its a hacked version and also run Spybot with it, if they dont find anything your 99.9% certain your PC will be clean.

Get Spybot from its own webby though not any free download site, afterall it is free anyway ;)

Install then update and run ;)

I use Lavasoft Ad-Aware to check for everything and SpywareBlaster to keep it all away once clean - www.javacoolsoftware.com

And yeah ditch anything to do with norton and get AVG and if you're running XP use it's firewall or if you're not use Zone Alarm.
