    Very informative tutorial and I do have a question:

    Which programs listed would you add to a "cleaner disk"? Any others would you include?

    Why I am asking is I read on another thread about horror stories when members went to visit parents, friends, etc. and they had multiple issues on the systems and the fun they had cleaning those systems.

    I want to make a CD of as many of the programs as possible, in case needed and that way I don't have to worry about downloading them and just have them with me.

    Thanks!

    Why I am asking is...................

    I want to make a CD of as many of the programs as possible.....................

    I actually carry this lot on a 128 MB flash memory stick [128 leaves lots of room] I copied the security file completely, when needed [daily at work] I just copy it to wherever it's required.

    On CD I carry the above, plus I visited Foundstone : http://www.foundstone.com/index.htm?.../freetools.htm
    and helped myself to a variety of tools.

    Also use PuTTY : http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html
    BEWARE : READ the warnings, it might be illegal in your country..............

    I have a fair collection, and to be honest, I haven't began to fully understand the workings on a lot of those I do have.

    In short : trial and error still has a lot of life left in its weary old cliched bones.

    Just suck it and see...............

    Doh !

    Just busted those writing rules .........http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=265497

    I always have Portable Firefox http://johnhaller.com/jh/mozilla/portable_firefox/ on my zip disk as I don't feel comfortable using IE (a lot of adware and hijackers in my campus computers).

    Since this has been bumped anyway....

    Could/should this be made a sticky? It's such a common question.

    Thanks for all the great links. The only spyware detection software I've been using has been adaware and spybot s&d. Good to see that there are a whole bunch of great, "free", options out there

    One final word :
    If the software is FREE, but you could afford to pay something, then DO SO.
    The more people that do pay towards the cost of these tools, then the more these people will develop their tools.


    Thank you for this ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ disclaimer. People (myself included) don't give enough monetarily to those that are volunteering their time to write tools for the community.

    Also try Counterspy. For me is the best one, also it can run in background mode that helps a lot: www.sunbelt-software.com. Nice tutorial.
