    Re: Protection startup

    I am a new user of SpyWareBlaster, I am using Windows XP home edition supplemented with SP2. I have downloaded and installed SpyWareBlaster, and when I run AdAware after being out on the internet it finds four critical objects. When I run AdAware the next morning before getting out on the internet it finds almost two hundred critical objects. What do I need to do to keep from being populated by spyware?

    Hi figpucker, and welcome to Wilders.

    Without knowing what other security programs you have, example a firewall, antivirus, anti-trojan, etc., it is difficult to guess why you are still getting infected.

    You could read through this thread to help tighten your security:
    Why did I get infected in the first place?

    If you would like to give us more information about what kind of "critical objects" are being detected by AdAware, that would help.
