Adaware and Spybot both classify each other as spywear. Its kinda funny really. :wink:

But neither is really spyware. They might flag one another simply because they both communicate with their servers for updates.

Or it could be a way of saying their product is better and "we hate the opposition" :roll: . But my spybot and ad-aware do not flag each other is there some way the scan is not affecting my whole system or is scanning but not flagging?

DSO Exploit
5 of these entries are found on my Spybot S&D, they don't come up on my SE Adaware but keep coming up every time and will not go away. Could someone tell me what this is and how to fix it?

DSO is a hole in Internet Explorer the true method is to dump IE and get FireFox1.1/Mozilla1.5(ish)/AOL(unknown version)/NetScape7.2

In basic just get rid of Internet Explorer it's a crap browser anyways.

Yeah, that's what I'd advise as well. IE simply has too many problems. I've been using Firefox for a year and have had no problems at all.

DSO exploits are usually harmless, if you already have the latest patches installed. But I agree, in all cases, just switch to Firefox. For those of you that have problems with memory (like Jaime or Ranbir), I'd suggest a custom build available here:

I forget which thread we used to discuss pop-ups in, but recently I'm discovering more and more websites bypassing Firefox's pop-up blocker. Since they only show up on some websites, I doubt I'm inflected with ad/spyware (and I scan with AdAware and Spybot every day). I played with the PopupTest, and found that Firefox cannot handle the drop down popups and the sticky popups. Are there any recent releases of pop-up killers that work to kill the pop-ups that Firefox can't?

Avant has a decent pop-up blocker. I guess it isn't getting as namely as Firefox, so maybe not many have tried to go around it. ;)

You also get to specifically block the domains that the ads come from.
So ultimately, the popup may come up once, but then you can block all pop-ups that come from that said domain.

You can also set it to bypass certain pop ups. Like PM notification on this forum ;)
