Spyware

Recommended Posts

Guest Herman Lesley, Jr.

When I run PC Pitstop it shows spyware and gives me a yellow flag. When I run their online spyware checker, it shows no spyware on this system. Before I ran P C Pitstop, I ran Spybot and Ad-Aware 6.0.

If there is no spyware on the system, why am I given a yellow flag?

Which is correct, PC Pitstop or their online spyware checker?

Why are the results different?

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Herman

Thanks for the info.

Do either of you think a download accelerator is really needed with DSL like it would be with dial-up?

not really, unless your connection keeps getying dropped, I wouldn't bother with any kind of 'download helper/manager'

I agree with radio, and know that when you uninstall DAP, you will also need to uninstall Radiate Advertising, look in Add/Remove programs. Then run adaware to clean up any "spyware poo" left behind. :nospys::)
