    Using Windows ME and Netscape 7.0 on Compaq 'puter. How do I get rid of
    this cursed "gain adserve" which is part of the misbegotten Gator
    program? This is the culprit on Pop-ups. I go to search, find the
    files but when I try to delete I get access denied.

    Please give me some help.

    I have tried trial versions of iOpus starr, SpyAnytime PC Spy and Spector
    Pro, neither Spybot or Ad-aware detected these.

    The only scanner I have that does is Webroot's Spysweeper, unfortunately it
    also found a few false positives. :0(

    The OP has Gain spyware -- nothing was mentioned about
    keyloggers. And if SpyBot S&D doesn't detect those you
    mentioned, submit them to Patrick for inclusion.

    An article in the newest PC Magazine gives an Editors choice nod to a
    program called Spy Sweeper 2.2. They rated it above Spybot because it works
    better at finding key loggers. Alas it is not free and I haven't gotten
    around to trying it yet as it was the first I have heard of it.
    The homepage for the product is here:

    And you can download a trial here:

    Cost is $29.95 a year after trial runs out.

    Give it a try and post back with a review whether or not it lives up to its

    I thought my subject heading was rather direct and to the point. Member
