Larry, I think you mean Adaware. Adware is what is causing the problem. Adaware helps stop it. We use the Adaware on all our internet accessable computers... It has proven to be fast and very good. We run Spy Sweeper and Adaware. If I run Spy sweeper first... Adaware consistantly finds 6 to 10 problems that Spy sweeper didn't. If I reverse the process... and run Adaware first... spy sweeper finds nothing. Give the free adaware a try first... if you like it, then you can upgrade... we use the free version of Adaware.... I PAY for Spy sweeper.... Hmmmm... makes me wonder how smart I'm not! Ha! Hope this helps.
