Let the Adware Beware

I spent half of yesterday and most of today trying to rid myself of some nasty Adware that some web site exposed me to. Frustrating as hell, since a few of them have hidden programs that actually re-install the Adware if it sees it's gone. Surfing the web in 2004 is like being a swinging single in the mid-70's: You have to be wary of some of the places you go, and install some protection, otherwise you could get a nasty virus. If you've never heard of Adware or Spyware and you browse the internet, do yourself a favor and download Spybot Search & Destroy or Ad-Aware. You'll be surprised with how many malicious and sneaky things get in under your computer's radar.
