    The Spyware Terminator real-time guard is pretty good. But the scanning is notorious for false positives. It may be a good idea to download the free version of SuperAntiSpyware and run it on demand. SAS has frequent updates and very few false positives. It and Spybot would be a nice combo to run on demand from time to time.

    You may want to consider SpywareBlaster as well. It updates about once a month.

    A list of online scanners is below. They can be quite helpful as well. I would recommend TrendMicro Housecall (the Euro version does not require Active-X download), ESET online scanner, Ewido and F-Secure.

    Good luck.

    Hey maddawgz,

    Is there anything keeping you from running Linux for basic web surfing? I mean keep window's for sites that absolutely require it if that's the kind of activity you're involved in but, if there's nothing holding you there .... time for some freedom buddy. *If interested state whether dial-up or high speed, and if your BIOS can boot from flash.

    High speed's good. Boot from flash is something your bios can do.
    Boot from floppy, cd-rom, hard disk, or most newer puter's, flash, as in drive.

    Were you running the XP firewall along with AVG suites' firewall? If so they could possibly conflict.
