With all the good anti-spware applications available, I would not take a chance with using something unknown (as evidenced by the lack of information about it after a web search).Where did you hear about this application?

Trying to help someone on another forum with access problems using WindowsME, which I use and am quite familiar with. This individual is not computer wise (yet), has lung cancer and trying very hard. Will pass on your comments as well. Any additional info will be welcomed!

I would certainly recommend without reservation Ad-AwareSE and Spybot S&D, since I have used both for several years. I find the former somewhat easier to use, and it has a better GUI, so that might be a first choice for the person you are trying to help.

There are several more listed under the pinned "free applications" in the all other forum; these have all been used with success by many members here. I would also re-inforce the notion, especially for a relative new user, to never download ANYTHING without doing a web search about the product; too many applications (especially the fun/pretty type) are repleat with spyware and poor coding.
