    New to affiliate programs.
    Need some help in direction to protect, find and clean parasite problem that seems to be prevalent. Any pointers?
    Thanks.
    Also, in reviewing threads, how can I find what merchants have questionable 'transaction reporting'?

    Hi there - welcome to ABW and to the wide world of affiliate marketing!

    I am still learning the ropes myself, but my advice is to spend time at www.parasiteware.com for LOTS of great info. The more you read the more it will all start to fall into place for you - promise.

    Best of luck!

    Start by cleaning up your own computer with AdAware, and SpyBot S&D

    Yep Qball http://www.spywareguide.com/txt_onlinescan.html is a quickie detect/removal tool that leaves affiliate cookies alone. On occassion certain BHO spyware/adware, and associated backdoor viruses, block access to SpyBot and Ad-Aware download sites and even turn off Windows and Norton live updates. That's where Trend Micros "Housecall" and the above online scanner come in handy. Ocassionally removing embedded XXX-dialers whack DSL/ADSL broadband settings...just a unfortunate hazzard.

    Holy Crap Batman ...I'm sending links to Wayne's new venture into "What's HOT". Next you'll be finding me wearing a Kerry T-shirt and watching CNN. Guess that is why almost 11,000 posts ago I chose the duck icon. I'm just a walking talking duck with an attitude...

    Not sure which Wayne you're talking about, (there's too many here) but if you'll wear a Kerry for President T-shirt, I'll send you one!
