Went ahead and took advice to install spyware guard. It installed fine and appeared to run fine. But the minute i click on anything to start it up spyguard pops up a message saying word for word
"Error Reading SpywareGuard Definitions! The file may be corrupt, or another program may have tampered with them.
Run Liveupdate to download the latest spywareguard definitions. This message will appear when you try to start covered file types unless you disable protection in teh spywareguard control panel.
I have updated the definitions via liveupdate and still get same message. any help would be appreciated.
