    Hi! What you've got looks pretty good to me - I've moved your post from the dedicated Javacool software section here to "privacy general" where I think you are likely to get a lot more feedback ;)

    Hello dunuelos, welcome to the forum. :D :D

    Excellent job. ;)

    Another site to help spread the word in fighting that crud :D

    Seeing as you did ask, the only thing I would change ever so slightly would be: [yeah, I'm being pedantic, I know] :doubt:

    SpywareBlaster is not in essence a program to 'get rid of more'. Is is basically a "preventer" of spyware loading into your system. As it sets "killbits" in the registry which prevents spyware from loading their own registry entries.

    Just a minor point, but I think important. As it does not 'scan or delete'.
    Just leave out "gets rid of even more and" .... and it will still read correct.

    Also to help further, if room, you could mention javacools' SpywareGuard, which guards from Browser Hijackings, etc. and works in conjunction with SpywareBlaster.

    It's a great effort on your part and I highly commend you for doing that. :cool:

    Cheers, TAS.

    One thing I would add is in the Ad-aware section after updating configure Ad-aware to use 'in depth' scanning. I know it would be difficult to keep this short but perhaps a link to Lavasoft's configs. or a a few pointers to the custom scanning.

    The above lines aren't too accurate either.

    You might want to check the defintion of trojans and viruses.

    Hello Dunuelos

    Good Article. I would consider adding the following free programs (since it seems as though you are listing freebies) to your list that may prove helpful as well.

    1. Winpatrol: This free program helps to block spyware, trojans, & adware from ever getting on your system to begin with. Plus has other uses.

    2. X-Cleaner: Free version available. Cleans your system of spyware/adware.

    3. A Squared: Free version available. Known as an anti-trojan, but will find and remove other forms of malware (spyware,adware,worms ect..) as well.

    Hth.
