Default Re: What is Microsoft doing?

Software That Actually Works These Days The Way You'd Expect ??? :-o :-o :-o

Unfortunately Microsoft now has a mind of it’s own & regardless of what the user wants, it goes ahead & performs updates. Try downloading the free version of “Spybot” (i.e., spybotsd13.exe or newer) & then update to the latest. Do a “clean” & after fixing all problems perform an “immunize”, which it usually takes a while before it comes back to you. Don’t interrupt it during the “immunization”, which might seem as though you didn’t do anything, but it is actually working w/o letting you know it’s busy, & select to backup your registry. “Spybot” should also find registry entries that allow Microsoft to spy on you. You can get those deleted by “Spybot”. Bazooka is also a good “Adware, Spyware” finder, but it doesn’t do any removing. You have to follow their instructions & do it yourself manually, however, if you don’t have any more “junk” in your computer, it should come out “No Spyware Detected”, which should give you some sense of peace or confidence. I use “McAfee” for a “virusScan” & a “firewall”. However, there is no “magic bullet” these days for keeping your computer free from unwanted intrusion. Stay away from most unsolicited e-mails & of course, those porn-sites, which do not have any regards for computer users. Most of the people I have helped ridding their computers from viruses had some porn stuff in them. Good luck…
