    Hi,

    I have Spyware loaded and added 4 or 5 updates since installing. If Spyware doesn't need to be open to function, then why is spyware still loading on my PC. I run AdSubtract, AdAware & Spybot daily and always find spyware on my searches. What exactly is Spyware preventing? H E L P!

    is the spyware your finding, just tracking cookies? block "3rd party" cookies if you have Internet Explorer 6 via tools>ie options>privacy>advanced. theres loads of tracking cookies, spyware-blaster blocks most known and privacy concerned ones.

    While Spywareblaster has a very extensive database and can help prevent many items....what AdSubtract, AdAware & Spybot are finding may not be covered for what ever reason.

    If we knew a little more about what the other programs are finding....it would help us in answering this question you have.

    I just ran the Yahoo spyfinder and it found, among others, BonziBuddy (19 objects), MarketScore (3 objects), ISTbar )a hijacker) 56 objects and EUniverse Pefect. There was also adware and tracking cookies but its the spyware that concerns me. Any thought! Thank you.
