    I use Ad-aware 6 and Spybot-S&D and use both on a regular basis to check for spyware and adware..
    I also have NAV2004, Spyware Blaster which is always on and regularly checked for updates and Kerio Firewall.
    I therefore think (thought) I was well-protected!!!
    This morning I downloaded Spyhunter for curiosity on the recommendation of a friend and then ran it.

    Spyware Blaster, Adaware and Spybot gave me a complete all-clear.
    I run Liveupdate every couple of days so have no problems there.
    But, Spyhunter showed the following are my system, the first 3 of which sound serious. order to remove them I would have to BUY the programme.Is it a setup job to get people to part with their money?
    If they really are SEVERE, then why didn't the other programmes find them?

    1. SeekSeek. Launcher. Registry. SEVERE.
    2. MicroGaming. Launcher. Registry. SEVERE.
    3. Downloadware. Launcher. Registry. SEVERE.
    4. Winactive (cookie)
    5. Winactive. (cookie) travel.ins

    Please help and advise especially about these SEVERE items.
    I am a beginner and I definately do not want to mess with the Registry.

    Thank you
