    If i have already downloaded parasite software (ie kazaa, winmx etc) By removing these programs does it remove the parasites as well?

    Hi Jimbo and welcome to ABW!

    No removing the software the parasite was bundled with will not remove the parasite. Some parasiteware can be removed more easily than others. First, go to add/remove and see if the program is there. If it is, go ahead and use the Window Remove Software function. Look closely at all programs listed here, as some parasiteware has more than one component. Next you need to download AdAware and run this program. It will find parasiteware and spyware that either you didn't know you had or that does not fully unintall through Windows. Run AdaWare. Reboot. Run AdAware again. Keep rebooting and running AdAware until it no longer detects anything.

    Just saw your PM, but guess you found the answer yourself. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] Sorry I didn't catch it sooner.

    BTW, WinMx is supposed to be ad and parasiteware free. Unless they have changed something recently. I think xolox might be bundling something with it now though.
