Do I need ewido with all the other stuff I have (see my signature)?? I read the list of all that it is compatible with, but what's the purpose when you have all those other programs??

I've already downloaded it, but don't know what to do with it. Enlighten/instruct me, please??

Thanks in advance!!

No one spyware/malware program will detect all spyware/malware.
That's why it's a good idea to run several different ones.
Hopefully what one misses, the others will catch.

The same goes for antivirus programs, that's why you should occasionaly run a couple of online scans.
We have a list of several online scans available here:

OMG!! It found one and the sound it made just about made me pee my pants!!! :thumbsup:

They need to add a "Caution" in those otherwise great instructions!! CAUTION: Turn your volume to low or make sure you're wearing your Depends!!

Well, the instructions said that if it finds one, to "choose clean" then click OK....it didn't have "clean", only "remove" so I hope it's okay I chose "remove". Of course, I left the box "....encrypt......quarantine..." checkmarked, so I'm probably safe. It was in the cookies (because I forgot that it said to run CCleaner first).

:flowers: Thanks again!!

You're welcome, Lily Livered.
Glad to be of help.
Yes Remove, and Clean, are the same thing.

By the way, it is a "G". :thumbsup:
