I need to know the difference between spyware and malware. The reason i ask is - recently when i run an Adaware scan it shows the following item -- name - favoriteman, type- file, catagory - malware. i quarantine it and delete it but it keeps coming back. is there something else i need to do to keep my computer secure, or is this harmless? i have seen spyware in the past but not malware.
hopefully others can benefit from this post also. thank you, Keith
