is yahoo toolbar and antispy any good
some guys on another forum site seem to think so. i tried to get it and while it was d'lding my ie crashed. i stopped the transfer and alls ok now. so i dont know, but im not chancing another try at it. it seems awfully strange that after i started the transfer my ie crashed, when it hasnt been doing that till then. id say try it if ya want, but be aware, it may cause probs.
In my experience the yahoo toolbar for antispyware is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard
thats hilarious dvko1.
well, i decided to give a go with the anti spy toolbar. last time i tried my puter crashed on me while dl/ding. i tried again and got it no probs. and i like the antispy deal i ran it and it found 3 things one was a trojan. it deleted all of them. hooray. so far its great. takes up a little more room with an added bar below my main ones and google bar. but i can get used to it.
It is in essence a downsized Pest Patrol app... and aptly described as a "chocolate fireguard" but hey! give it some credit for detecting and removing its share of sleazeware....! I think it is a useful complement to what I have but wouldn't rely on it as my main line of defense...
aw no i wouldnt either. i have all the other goodies to protect for that but it is a fast little sucker only takes me 37 secs to scan. jus a little added help thats all.
