Am I being paranoid? I am on dial-up, & to protect myself out there, started out with Ad-Aware, Spybot, SpywareBlaster & SpywareGuard. Progressed to Webroot's Window Washer (which is excellent) & then to the free version of ZoneAlarm (excellent also). Also have HijackThis & various utilities from GRC.com. Question: Do I really need both both Ad-Aware & Spybot (because of the discrepencies) now that I have Window Washer?? Also, Ad-Aware always but always picks up low-level adaware that Spybot does not. Why is this have always been told that Spybot is the best. PS. forgot to add that I also have Norton Anti-virus 2003. Cheers, Pete. PS. --- G'day DaCat, hope all is well?
