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!

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
