Norton foound 6 adware files on my hard drive. I think I have gotten rid of two of them, but the other 4 look to be a PITA according to the Symantec website. Any great ideas on how to get rid of them, and prevent them?

One answer, Spybot Search and Destroy! It's free and should remove the nasty beasts.


It will also perform an inoculation against the pests.

Be sure to do the update also.

I second spybot S&D!
I use both programs on a weekly basis and I really have good results.
Also, staying away from the free porno will limit your pop-ups and web tracking  [:d[

Thanks guys. I got rid of some of them myself. Spybot found some more.

i had issues with adaware a few weeks ago.  it was running perfectly for a year then all of a sudden started removing some file in my registry that spyware attached to.  Ire Sent me a program and its been doing a great job.  other than the one issue with adaware i would recommend it.  I am runnig win 98 so that may have brought its own set of issues with it.
