I started from scratch after running my Webroot spy sweeper, opened my browser and msn is the home page. Went straight from there to Yahoo to check email. Shut down the browser and ran the Spy sweeper again. Somewhere between MSN and Yahoo it picked up 3 spywares. If any of you have a good spyware detecter, please use the same method and let me know what you come up with. Isn't ashame that big corps like Yahoo and MSN sneak spyware in on us?

When I used to visit MSN and yahoo regularly, the only thing I would get categorized as spyware would be the cookies from those sites. The only places that seem to spread the harmful stuff would be small/no name pages or pop ups.

I pretty much have popups under control....When I used to be annoyed by them, I would email the companys that sent them and promised I would never buy their product for putting a pop up on me !
