Nicely done and an excellent reference. I also noticed that you are an HJT Member and have been since 4/2004. However, I also noticed that you only have a total of 117 posts in 4 years, so do you use another username to assist in the Malware section? Just curious.

I have Spybot S&D Hosts files. Is the MVP one better? Should I integrate the two? If so, how? Copy and Paste?

Thanks,
Juha
