A couple of months ago i downloaded a spyware program called spyware stormer. i have just found out that some software downloads its own spyware/adware. How can you tell if it has? As i am new to this site could you tell me what the hijackThis log is. I am completely bewildered by all this technology and it scares me every time something strange pops up on the screen. My ISP is offering a free security download called Netguard and is supplied by ntl does anyone know if its any good. If not which is the best free/cheap download available for windows XP.
