    http://www.spywareinfo.com/xscan.php

    Just scans for spyware, just ran it and i'm clean

    Others
    http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/
    http://www.pestpatrol.com

    Are these better/different than stuff like sypbot, adaware and aluria since they don't delete cookies, i think they just scan, don't know if they remove too. I'm looking for something to recommend in my newsletter that won't touch the cookies.

    Careful with these - im not saying they are bad at all - i don't know anything specifically about any of them... just remembering the terrible week i had when purityscan.com added a fineclicks link to a popup program that automatically loaded when purityscan.com was run...

    from the outside, purityscan looks like a good thing just like the above listed - but on the inside it was a pest itself...

    Thanks,

    From what i checked they looked good. Doxdesk i know is good, spywareinfo looks good from going through there site. Pest Patrol not sure of, i remember some complaints about them awhile back on this board. I'm looking for something to send to my newsletter subscribers to get their computer clean. While surfing around just now i saw this on a non-affiliate site:

    "Every week I receive emails from visitors who've ended up with parasites on their PCs.
    Follow this link for hints and tips for dealing with this ever growing problem."

    Gotta get webmasters (affiliate and non-affiliate) to starting posting stuff like this. Some kind of movement to get peoples computers clean. I don't count on the networks doing anything, i know better than that. In the past i thought educating the merchant was teh way to go, now i'm thinking educating the average person (our site visitors) is the way to go.

    If caught whenu on my machine (which I knew about) and it caught remnants of some crap that got on the Mrs machine when she let a kid play on it last week.

    I thought I had gotten all of it but I guess not.

    I've run adaware and spybot and neither identified what was found or even the crap when it was fully installed and giving the Mrs fits.

    Pretty slick!

    ===============================
    PeePee merchants with PooPoo policies allow our earnings to be flushed down the crapper.

    Why give parasites unlimited cookie durations and credit for sales where they divert our users and overwrite our cookies. PP merchants directly support what many consider unfair trade practices and thievery!

    I just ran PestPatrol and they flagged my ClubMom affiliate return day cookies as "spyware cookies," alongwith saying the same about the network cookies.

    In my opinion, these guys and their ignorance are dangerous to affiliate marketing.
