Is there a specific way to run SpyBot to get the most out of the program. And does Bot give false readings of what is found on the system?? After I run Bot, can I post the log and have someone troubleshoot it for me??

I have several more questions:

1. Are all the programs that are displayed on the website, can they be trusted. I see a lot of advertisments on this site from getting rid of Spyware to AntiVirus programs. Will they hurt or harm your system in any way??

2. After I uninstall a program and then delete the remainder files off of my "C" drive, why is that program still showing on my System? I thought after you uninstall, it took care of everything.

3. When I do Start, Run and type in "misconfig", it shows the uninstalled programs are still running in the background. Is there a way of totally delet it??

I am running Win XP

Thanks 4 your help [/size]

Hello simplee and welcome to Geeks to Go! :)

If you're looking for protection software, I recommend looking in the following thread.
http://www.geekstogo...ftware-t38.html
The programs in the above thread can be trusted.

If you're looking to get help with removing malware, I recommend you go to the malware forum, read the stickies and post a log there.

Hope this gave you enough information :)
Regards,
Olrik
