    I've read that adaware either destroys affiliate cookies and/or blocks the user's host file for affiliate links, so I want to be able to refer y users to somewhere that will effectively remove the parasites from their machines, yet retain our good affiliate cookies and not block the host file for affiliate links.

    From what I've read, Aluria Eliminator appears to be an answer (I've read it may keep affilate cookies but I don't know if it blocks affiliate links in the host file) but I'd just like to hear what others feel - is Aluria the best answer or is there a better removal program which, importanty, will retain affiliate cookies and not do nasty things with the host file?

    Aluria kills the cookies also.

    A new tool/service will be launched in about two weeks - I'll post it.

    Me too!

    I think the best parasite removal program is the Merchants dropping their a$$ off their program!

    How do you know that the cookies you are leaving are "good" cookies and not somehow set by the scum warez you're removing, though?

    Cookie tampering (or reading) is unethical, IMO. If the existing cookies are Pware ridden then those will be on the system (and the price to pay, for not removing cookies) but the system will be clean so future actions will be safe.

    This one ... 65% done AO yesterday.

    I'm quickly learning that anything to do with software and custom programming takes triple the projected time

    I worked with one developer who was 85% done "week after week". When I asked how long the remaining 15% would take - he was at a lost for words and didn't know how to respond - LOL.

    Just found this old thread. Was this project dropped or is there something we can use available?

    Seems like after 12 months of holding our breaths maybe Haiko aught to resort to plan II. Research and post something that does detect/remove the adware/spyware programs without tagging network cookies for removal. I'd trust his recommendation more then the one Linshare touts as their new merchant solution STOPzilla.

    Did the jury ever deliver a verdict on this? I'm wondering if the xblock turned out being good or if STOPzilla is any good. Is there something better out there?

    I've been using microsoft antispyware tool. It hasn't found ANY spyware on my computer and I'm starting to wonder if I'm living under a lucky star or if the program just doesn't work.

    Any new info on spyware killers?

    It did at the beginning but is it still true. I'm getting my third update right now and I don't know what they are updating. 180Solutions and others are putting pressure on antispyware companies to avoid being flagged as spyware.

    Everybody's getting in the spyware act:
    http://biz.yahoo.com/ap/050627/spywa...sers.html?.v=2
    (Monday June 27, 9:32 am ET)
    Yahoo Inc. made a deal with adware company Claria Corp., formerly known as Gator Corp., to provide search listings for its SearchScout toolbar. The popular search engines Ask Jeeves and Google also benefit from adware, says Internet researcher Benjamin Edelman.

    He says an Ask Jeeves toolbar generates ads without users' full consent, while Google's search listings appear in queries made through a questionable third-party toolbar. Ask Jeeves and Google officials dispute Edelman's account and say they don't use any spyware or adware. Company policy bans the use of adware by Google, said spokesman Barry Schnitt.
