Does avast! cover you for spyware protection? Everytime i try and download spybot its some dodgy version thats probably giving me spyware.
my nod32 picked up a virus on a new version of bit comet when i downloaded it off of download.com. pretty ridiculous huh.
Get Spybot from here http://www.safer-networking.org/index2.html. Why would you download it from random websites, it has an official site.
so much for "tested spyware free"
