Hi people, I was recommended this form having made a lot of people in the dance
and health forums aware of spyware, so this is my first post so go easy on me.

Like most other people, I'm geting pretty sick of spyware on my PC so I've now go adaware and spyhunter running on it, Zonealarm is about to go as well, but is there a piece of software that can lock a windows registry?

Welcome to the site Teflon Don!

You do not want to lock the registry, rather you want to make it so your Internet Explorer can not run known malicious programs, or even visit known malicous sites.

The best way to do that is to read these three tutorials and follow the directions in each of them. Using all three will go an extremely long way in securing your computer.

Using SpywareBlaster to protect your web browser

Using SpywareGuard to protect your computer from Spyware/Hijackers

Using IE-Spyad to enhance your privacy and security

Hope this helps.
