What are the best ways to combat parasiteware?
On a personal system - ensuring 100% it is clean of this crap?
I've been using ad-aware regularly to be sure. I keep it up to date with their Refupdate program. Should I be doing something else?
Educating the public - I feel that a lot (most) of the general web surfing public don't understand this at all. I talk to people who work in IT and they are aware of parasiteware, kind of - they know there is something causing all the extra pop-ups, but, don't quite know or care what. I recently talked two ex-co-workers through install of adaware and cleansing of their systems (many many components found [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] )
How can we as a community better educate the public? Google bomb pointing to adaware site?
Detectors on our sites? How do you handle this? Is it wise to deny access?

Best way is to educate your shoppers that they might be infected with Adwarez/spyware if their system slows to a crawl and Ads popup when visiting web sites. Point them to the discussion groups or the Adaware www.lavasoftusa.com site. The other thing is to setup a page for news article links like the Gator law suit, anit-spamm sites and our ABW forum.
