I downloaded Windows Clean Up. It looks pretty good but before using it there are obviously cookies I want to save. I looked at CookieWall but I didn't much care for the interface. I guess I'm looking for freeware that's a little simpler to use. CookieWall made me a little uncomfortable. Suggestions?



Also, I was looking for another spyware scanner. I noticed that Google Updater offers PC Tools' Spyware Doctor and I haven't seen anything about it here. I already have Defender, Spyware Blaster, Spyware Guard & AVG Anti Spyware and I guess I'm looking for one more spyware scanner unless you think I have enough. My guess is you can never have enough.



Also, I have the Comodo Firewall & Avira AntiVir. I like them both. Comodo is very unintrusive.


I'm interested in any other suggestions. I've picked up a few already like running spyware & virus scanners in safe mode. I definitely plan to try that. This is a great site.

In addition to what you're already using, I'd suggest Ad-Aware, and Spybot S&D.

Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.
We also have a tutorial on using Ad-Aware SE.

Sorry, but I don't know of any good 3rd party cookie managers.
I just use the one in Firefox, and it does all I need.

I'm familiar with both. I'm not crazy about Spybot and I know Ad Aware is releasing a new version tomorrow. I'd like to see some feedback about it first. Is anyone familiar with Crap Cleaner?

CCleaner in my opinion is very good but it's not a spyware scanning tool.

CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history.

Superantispyware is a good spyware scanner.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

I know that. It's very similar to Windows Clean Up. Does it do exactly the same thing or will it also allow me to save cookies?



Edit:I took a closer look at CC Cleaner and it does allow saving of selected cookies so I downloaded that and ditched Windows Clean Up.
