Sorry if this has been asked before, but hopefully I won't get bashed for asking again. I see many times here at this site when people ask about software for spyware/adware, it is recommended that after installing it to run it in safe mode. What is the benefit, or advantage, of this? I currently run AdAware 2007 Free, AVG Anti Spyware, and Super Antispyware for spyware/adware prevention. I normally run these while the computer is running normally, or NOT in safe mode. Would I be better off to run these programs in safe mode? Will I detect/find/remove more this way? Your comments welcome, thanks.
