What is Malware? - Ad-Aware 6

  grussell 16:10 15 May 04

Once i have scanned my computer using ad-aware, you are given a list of all the files on your computer. There are some files that are under Malware, can anyone tell me what this is.

the files it lists are spyware and should be deleted.

If you don't already have Spywareblaster I recommend installing it. It blocks most scum entering your PC in the first place as you surf. click here for more info & to d'load.

Forgot to say that after installing S'blaster you'll need to manually enable protection. Also remember to check for updates regularly.

Whilst agreeing in general with the others re deleting be aware that some freeware only works because it includes 'spyware'. You may find some programs not working if you delete, for example, advertisng.
