    TYVM - got them and BTW - I ended up using the Safer Networking #1 (Europe) mirror. The Unido - Europe made Spybot quit responding again!

    I'm talking about changing mirrors for downloads as shown the dropdown menu that I have circled on this screenshot.

    I have heard others have had problems with Spybot not detecting anything after the Feb 02, 2004 update - but I understand that this update corrects that - of course I had none detected as I had just run AdAware the night before!

    Yea, I had to use the USA mirror, the default just caused it to lockup

    IMO Ad-aware is so much better

    Use both of them. They both find stuff the other doesn't

    I use them both too.

    Personally, ad aware basic hangs or sometimes does not respond.

    Spy bot has a lot of other features ad-aware does not have.

    I prefer spybot search n destroy.

    I think soon it will become a shareware.

    I agree 100% - sometimes I run AdAware first and finds stuff with Spybot - other times I run Spybot first and find othre things with AdAware and sometimes it doesn't matter which one I use first - I find nothing with the second one!

    Maybe the first one removed the things the second one would have found if you had run the second one first!

    but if he ran the second one first, wouldnt that make the first one running second the second time after the first one runs? which makes it pointless... blah, its too hot in LA.
