My automatic AOL spyware/adware scans regularly say "we have found and blocked 16 items" (or any other number), but sometimes it says "1 item found, do you wish to block it? Warning--blocking may stop other programs working"
I click 'Yes' to block it anyway, is that the right thing to do? I mean, I don't want it sitting on my system do I?
As for "stopping other programs working", I've got my fair share of glitches like everybody else which I can just about live with, so how would i know if a blocked item has caused the glitches?
I must have scores of blocked items on my system by now and it'd be impossible to check each one to see if its causing problems.
Can somebody give me a brief overview of the whole subject?
