Hi.
Which version of SpyBot are you running?
Yes, that is recommended to use Mozilla Firefox of course,
IE isn't very safe.

"AvenueA" is just a cookie, and therefore relatively harmless.

To stop getting those messages, in SpyBot S&D go to "Immunize", go to the "Permanently running Bad Download Blocker" section, and choose "Block all pages silently".

am using the latest spybot. I didn't get the problem with firefox. why was that. Does that mean that firefox automatically blocks these or that spybot doesn't work with firefox. When I was playing around with spybot I found out that it had an option which made it enable with IE. I didn't see any such thing for other browsers(this is in the normal mode. I couldn't follow anything in advanced mode). Is there any such spyware remover exclusively for mozilla or opera.

I'm not a FireFox user myself, só I'm afraid I can't help you there.

For any other questions regarding SpyBot you could also consider posting at their forum: http://forums.net-in...n.net/index.php?
