A week old PC with 104 Spyware? I woudl first say to remove the spyware. Then i would suggest either downloading Firefox or Opera and stop using IE. Getting 104 pieces of spyware in a week is not good. Even harder in Vista.
Adaware and similar anti-spyware applications will often treat regular cookies, that you actually need, as "PUPs" (possibly unwanted programs) and therefore can cause panic when you first run them as they label just about anything as malware.
There is the ability to tell Adaware to ignore certain detections in future. Consult the help file or their support: http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/
If you are ever that concerned you can always run "Hijackthis" and post its log on any of the following forums for expert advice:
It is up to Guru really. I dont mind reading them. But like i said. I am no expert. If anything i am intermediate. I will catch most but not all problems. They are very redundant. But for sure if they start to become more of a regualr thing then either we could 1.) make a forum for them specifically or 2.) redirect them to a better source.
That is strange that McAffe wouldnt allow things like this. It would help them out greatly to do so. I mean why send them off to another site to get help when you can do it in your own forum. I would think that the people would be a little drawn back by you sending them else where to get help. I know for me i wouldnt return to the forums. I mean why go back to the site if they are not gonna help me and send me on my way to another site?
I have been on a few sites. But after the 1 site which does have HiJack This logs i read thru them constantly and see what the results where. I have answered several thousand myself. Just not on that forum.
I've only been a MOD since 2004 at McAfee, We don't accept Hijackthis logs, only logs from McAfee applications. The above 8 forums I mentioned is our standard response to anyone with an infection that wont go by normal means.
