I agree entirely...just look at our hjt forum. The problem is this stuff comes out so fast and in so many ways. Half the time we are cleaning and fix new spyware before the vendors even get a sample.

One of the problems is, I suggest, that many users believe that since they are running one or more anti-spyware applications, they do not have to use a great deal of caution about what they download, and blithely install all the fun/pretty/happy toolbars and applications they come across without first doing some research on Google about them or reading the EULA.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
