Ok my brother was on looking for cheats and withen 20minutes he had infected our computer with over 800 instances of spyware with Spybot and adware-se, i think it is a new record:lol:. I'm also running virus scan. Is there any free program that blocks that from comming on your computer(besides a fire wall)?

I think that spybot S&D will block some of it. Also, using a different browser, like mozilla or firefox, will keep most of it off.

Then I would suggest that you go to www.snapfiles.com and take a look at what they have, since you cant ditch IE. They have just about everything.

IE is easy to ditch, and it works and looks pretty much the same as IE. I don't see how you can't change it... :uhm:

Spybot can be set to block incoming spyware. Very useful sometimes.

Yep, SpyBot is the way to go. I also run Ad-Aware after it aswell to see if either program missed anything.
