Are these pop up occurances spyware or are they normal. I am referring to the ones that show up after you close your browser. I ran SSD, Adaware (free version) and AllTracksGone to clear my cookies et al. SSD and Adaware scans look fine, just some cookies left over. I was wondering if I DL'ed Adaware Pro would it catch this. I also know that Zone Alarm (suite) has a spyware/adware removal feature but I am running Mcafee Security Center and I like it so I don't want to "cut of my nose in spite of my face". Anyway, what is a good standalone adware/spyware program I could use. Preferable I would like to purchase it in belief that free DL's of programs aren't altogether safe or may not be as bonifide as the for sale version.
What are your thoughts?
