strange shit, companies actually get paid by advertisers (big companies) to provide info for them, like age, race, accupation, where youve been, your favorite sites on the net, your click-through trails, what programs you run,

some even can turn your computer on and use your bandwidth, provided you have a wake-on-Lan network card, which come pretty much as a standard today... i think kazaa does something like this, i remember reading about them doin that,,,

they work with a company called "brilliant digital entertainment" who basically gets paid to spread your info around to whoever will buy it.........


go to ad-aware.com and download ad-aware, uninstall kazaa, run ad-aware, and then re-install "kazaa - Lite" i run it every few days and it always seems to find something....

ok..... ill make this as easy as possible...

uhh... when you download the program, "save file as" and save it to your desktop, it just makes it easier to find when its done downloading.....

then you will have the single installer on your desktop, double click to install

all the settings should be defaulted in the installer, in other words click "ok" or "yes" for all of the prompts,

after the installer is finished, you will have an icon on your desktop for the program, (if not, run "C:\Program Files\Lavasoft Ad-Aware\Ad-aware.exe")

and the program will open...

click all the boxes to scan, including, deep memory scan, and your c:\ and the memory scan, and the registry scan

it will run through its process, if and when it finds spyware components on your machine, it will list them for you..... what you wanna do is click all of them, and back them up

after you the backup completes, you can remove all the evil components.....

good luck......

good stuff, now watch what you download, dont use kazaa, only kazaa lite....


and those grey boxes that pop up when your surfing the net, dont accept them, unless you know who its coming from and you trust them, and stay away from anything that says GATOR or puts the weather and temp on your toolbar,

anything that pops up and says "security risk" or "your data is at risk" or anything like that stay the fuck away from.....

i dont know about winmx, just scan after you install it!

and when you back them up, it does back them up in case one of the entries is a legitemit program etc etc etc and it stops working after you delete it

thanks for the link

no thats the point of backing them up, the backup stays in ad-aware, so if you delete them and a program stops working bc it was misread as spyware you can restore it through ad-aware

but after you delete them, even if you have themn backed up, they wont be spying


some companies actually can use your microphone and pc-cam so turn them off!! crazy
