 Here are some new sites I have discovered this past month. Hope some of them will prove useful to you.


For a free download of Ad-aware, a program that scans your computer system for the most common types of advertising spyware and safely removes offending software, go to: 

http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,7423,00.asp

 

After you have downloaded this S/w & installed it, I would recommend that you run it daily or every other day to keep out the spyware that attaches itself to various web sites that you visit.
