    Hi minacross,

    I moved your post to a more appropriate forum.

    I love it, but I would never recommend it for inexperienced users.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi Pieter, ;)

    Could you define "inexperienced user", or elaborate on your reservations for recommendation to an inexp. user?

    Thanks, your opinion is greatly appreciated and respected!

    BTW: I'm gonna give it a trial, if you liked it! ..... Hmmm a new toy! :D :cool:

    Bazooka is remarkable for its speed, only takes a couple of seconds to scan.
    It doesn't fix anything, but will identify problems found and offer advice on doing manual fixes.
    Ad-aware and SBS&D do a far more intensive job, however Bazooka can be useful IN ADDITION to your main spyware scanner(s) since it can alert you to items they may miss. Not everyone may feel comfortable mucking about their system doing manual fixes though. I use it after my main scanners, 'cause it is so quick, and gives me a warm & comfy feeling when it doesn't find anything. :cool:

    I'be tried and I like it. It found a few things that the others missed. Grant it that I planted the spyware crap on my computer to see if it found it.
