Ad-aware & Spybot

  Confab 21:48 09 Jul 03

I often see posts saying new update available for the above. These are great but what I don't understand is why they are posted. I do a pc clean once a week and run both Ad-aware and Spybot but before I do so I check for updates. Am I missing something or do I need to know as soon as an update is available?

No you're doing it righr, some of us are just possibly lazy or don't bother. Wait for the postings on this!!!!

dont worry confab, its just that some of us have nothing better to do than surf all day everyday so like to run adaware and spybotS&D on a daily basis (and a virus scan) and its a nice part of the community here that people give the heads up when theres a new update saving all of us having to bother.

weekly scanning is fine for most folk but i would suggest running an array of security scans before making online purchases etc. to make sure you have no keyloggers lurking about.
