I've been using AddAware every week for years. I have always deleted everything it comes up with and never had a problem.

I'm the same as Vince. It's what AdAware doesn't catch that you need worry about. I've never had a false positive.

Look up spyware in the FAQs on this page, heaps of inforamtion. (slow to load).

Hi Sajook
Suggest do what Mark says - but as he observes the FAQ's are slow to load - it is much, much quicker to go through search to get to the FAQ. Tests have clearly shown that !!
