I know I should keep my mouth shut, but how do people get so much spyware? I ran the scanner (quick, not deep) on my machine and the _only_ thing if found was VNC, and I put that there. Now, I use IE (and firefox), I visit web sites, I read HTML e-mail w/outlook, I download and run programs even. Do I just not visit the right (er, wrong) sites? -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President & CEO Tech Software (516) 627-3800 x11 WaldenL@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://www.TechSoftInc.com Quiquid latine dictum sit altum viditur.

This is a beta so it will be interesting if they think they should CHARGE for something to protect their "fill in the blank" operating system. In working on this PC and while in the Registry it struck me how TOTALL out of control that is. There is no way in the WORLD there should be so many different "things" in the Registry. It should be MAJORLAY redone and simplified and it should be obvious to know what should and shouldn't be there... <rant off> :-) Along this same topic, is anyone's company using a commercial Spyware package ? I was reading up on one, SpyCatcher Enterprise from http://www.tenebril.com/ and it is budget time and I am really wondering if it is time for something like this ? Thanks, Chuck I haven't played with it yes, but from speaking to friends it has one other nice feature, it runs as a service and supports limited capability users -- so for those of us with kids setup as restricted users on the PC it's still a useful tool! -Walden -- This is the PC Technical Discussion for iSeries Users (PcTech) mailing list To post a message email: PcTech@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/pctech or email: PcTech-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/pctech.
