Does anyone have experience with these? What one works best?

I have firewall, virus scan and privacy screen, but still get popups and it does not stop these spyware programs. It finds them after the fact:mad:

I sure would like to stop them. One of them keeps changing my homepage from Reef Frontiers:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

TIA, Chris

Try this...

I've downloaded and run this every once in a while to clean off all of the programs that are "tracking" what I am viewing on the web. I have seen increase speed and like that I don't have extra crap on the hard drive.

Hope it helps.

the best pop up program I've found and used is Pop-Up Cop. You can download it from http://www.popupcop.com/

as far as spy ware and such I use ad-aware.

both are the best that i've found. Pop-Up Cop is super configurable and stops 'everything' unless you tell it otherwise.
