    Dun know how many it was, but my friends computer took the entire night just to get ad-aware to make a backup, and then remove the objects.

    The computer used to take over 5 minutes just to boot up, after ad-aware was run two times, it took only a total of 50 seconds.

    i seen 500 and only a few were cookies. The rest were crap spyware programs like alexia or w/e. Just stupid **** that my friend had cause they just got cable and they download pretty much any thing they see on bearshare.

    and probably the better way out too :D

    Since I've been working at coreix supporting windows based dedicated servers I realised just how insanely stupid 90% of people are. Mostly those that think they are **** hot with hardware and windows too!!

    Over at a chickies house, fixin her machine. Ran Spybot and it took sooo long (lost count at about 500+), we decided that we would down to her basement and I got to know her a lot more. Sitting there watching Spybot grudgingly go through it paces was no fun.

    thread resurrection time...

    just reformatted my step-daughters machine with new Maxtor drive and extra 256 stick of SDRAM (making 512).....

    so this old Duron flies better than it ever did (for now). Thing is I know she is a real spyware/virus nightmare (McAffee is on). I am thinking I shall let it be and not run adaware or spybot and let her "learn" how this kind of thing affects her computer - in a month or two I will post back maybe to let you know if she breaks it or what the outcome may be!

    well i only had slightly over a hundred spywares and stuff like that when i used ad-aware for the first time on this com which has been used for just slightly over a year. there're always some spyware which will always seem to reappear again even after cleaning. =\

    does anyone have any solution for that?

    thats pretty much normal...u should try the other ad-ware removal program that has real time so it helps more with not having the spyware come back. here is the thread about it http://forum.osnn.net/showthread.php?t=41977

    my personal ad-aware record is 1404 on one machine, but a co-worker found 3018 last week. We have the screen prints hanging up in the office. :)
