    I need your knowledge!!!

    Hello,

    I am trying to make a tutorial to help people get rid of pop ups, adware etc and free up computer space. I have already given it all I got, and to be honest I don't have much. I figured there are people who know a lot more than I do about this topic, I would appreiciate it if you checked out the site. (I am going to fix the spacing errors) and then post here to let me know what I did wrong and what I should include. Thank you!

    Why do I get the _horrible_ feeling that I shouldn't visit your site in the first place.....

    There are more than enough tutorials here on AO alone to help you make something sensible for yourself..... If you don't have the ability to research it for yourself then the result will be less than adequate for your target audience......

    I think you need to research this for yourself....

    That's my 2c...... But it's probably worth more than that.....

    You didn't mention upgrading your OS. Probably the #1 way you prevent adware?

    Oh yeah, and SP2 blocks pop ups.

    Well............go on then, I'll bite:

    1. SpyBot S&D and AdAware 6 should be run in Safe Mode to give them a better chance of removing malware that may have already loaded.

    2. Cool Web Search is a particularly troublesome customer and will probably require the CWShredder specialist removal tool (free)

    3. SwatIT is a very thorough free product to be used in conjunction with the others. Warning! be patient, thoroughness takes time. Run it in safe mode as well. (free)

    4. Activate the resident protection/immunisation in SpyBot S&D (There may be issues with some distributions of Norton)

    5. Get a firewall (Sygate and ZoneAlarm do free ones)

    6. Turn off preview in your mail client

    7. Disable java cacheing in your browser

    8. Get WinPatrol from BillP Studios (free)

    9. Set your browser history to 0 days

    10. After a clean up, defragment in safe mode.

    And many more.....................

    <HEAD>
    <BODY bgColor=#00000>
    <FONT size=3 style="PADDING-LEFT: 200px; FONT-WEIGHT: bold; COLOR: #0099ff">

    I say it alot but one of the best things you can do is add file/sys auditing and policies. Hijackthis, something like regprot, setup guest accounts that are as limited as possable but you wanna be able to use this when you go online & (ect). Malware can't get startup very easly when it doesn't have the rights to edit registries and make the needed changes on systems. This is the problem with home-users. Also... We have been seeing for the past few weeks now, ("please, all you people of site-A (which is AO) give site-b (yours) some content?") Come on, man...

    If you want to hear us talk then do it for entertainment... if your site needs words that badly then its doomed to fail.

    My question is WHY ? What can you offer in a tutorial that is new , unique, not already known or cannot be found easily, on this and numerous other web sites ?
