Hi all.

On my new pc I have little protection except Spybot Searcg & Destroy, so would appreciate your recommendations as to what I should download.

I have read good reports on Ad-Aware. I also would like to know what you suggest on e-mail/spam programmes. I think I read of Mailwasher?

What else should I have? I have Norton System Works also.

I do find Spybot a bit daunting and as yet havent fixed anything! Some problems seemed to include Works!!??

I could post the results f anyone wishes.

Many thanks

KC
