By Ad-Aware clean up program
Bill Williams


Edit MessageUploaded - 28 Aug 2003 16:03

Ad-Aware is a program for cleaning up those nasty advert programs which get inserted into your computer by certain websites and which can wreak havoc with your normal running.

Typical behaviour by advert and spyware software includes putting pop-up windows on your system, dropping your Internet connection and dialling premium phone lines instead and also storing cookies which track your behaviour patterns.

You can get ad-aware from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ [Link]

http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,7423,00.asp [Link]

After installation it puts an Icon on your desktop which you run in much the same way as an anti-virus program.

It is necessary to fetch fresh copies of Ad-aware from Lavasoft from time to time, to keep up with new ploys by the dodgy advertisers.

Bill.
