    My friend has a win98SE pc currently without internet connection. He
    dropped his ISP because his PC is so infectred with spyware and malware it
    won't run. I'm going to install a DUN VPN connection. I'd like to burn spy
    sweeper, spy bot and ad aware and their updates to a cd, then
    run these programs before making the DUN connection. Can I burn the updates
    to a cd then install from the cd? Dial Up Networking connection is so slow
    I don't what to d/l anytthing.

    Thanks,


    Mike

    Go for it. I have them on an external USB drive that I take with me.

    The updates will be burned onto the cd or how do you suggest I update the
    databases?

    For Spybot Search & Destroy, this page has the downloadable update:
    http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

    For Ad-Aware, the updates are downloadable from here:
    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

    Spy Sweeper's web site seems to be down, but maybe you'll be able to connect
    to it later and see about any similar downloadable updates.

    I used to carry a 100meg parallel zip drive. Came in its own case and
    all. USB is so much nicer tho.

    Same concept though - take my 'toolbox' with me. My boss had a new toy this
    week (actually two of them) - Memorex USB memory with 2G each! Way cool, but
    outa my budget ;o)

    What I can't figure out is how to install the updated spyware databases if I
    don't have a "net connection. I'll d/l whatever updated databases I can and
    burn them on the cd. I want to scan for spyware/malware using udpated
    databases then connect to the net. I hope I'm stating the problem clearly.

    The spy detection programs are just about useless unless updated spyware
    databases
    are installed in the programs. The problem is how do I get the updated
    databases into the
    spyware detection programs w/o a 'net connection.

    What's in your toolbox? Your spyware detection programs updated with most
    recent spyware databases?

    Damn, Mike, will you THINK for a bloody minute? You go to the websites I
    listed, you download the UPDATES onto your freakin' computer, you burn them
    to a freakin' CD, you take that freakin' disc WITH THE UPDATES on it to your
    friends house, and you update the software on his freakin' computer!!!

    What is so stinking difficult about this? Geez...does someone need to come
    hold your hand?
