TeMerc Linked To In PC Mag Write Up!

Postby TeMerc » Mon Mar 19, 2007 12:11 am

I found this as my top referrer this month, so far:
Security Super Guide

Free Antispyware Unfortunately, there isn't a standout choice for free spyware protection. Spybot and Ad-Aware, once the champions of spyware protection, just can't keep up with the current onslaught. Microsoft's Windows Defender (built into Vista and OneCare) seems to be backsliding—at least, when I retested it recently it did worse than previously. And though Tenebril's SpyCatcher Express turned in a decent performance in 2005, my tests weren't as stringent then.

Your free antivirus's real-time protection will block some spyware installations, and you can choose whichever free spyware program seems best to you. But do supplement your protection by running the scan-only free version of Spy Sweeper (Webroot Software) or Spyware Doctor (PC Tools). Don't worry if they find suspicious cookies. However, if the report says you have actual malicious software, you'll need to either bite the bullet and buy the full product or go for free expert help.

How do you get that free help? Visit http://www.spywarewarrior.com, http://www.temerc.com, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com, or one of the many other sites that host the HijackThis! (HJT) utility. Download HJT and run it—just save a log, don't take any action. Upload your log to the help forums at the site where you downloaded HJT. The experts will take it from there, offering specific and individualized cleanup instructions. After logging and cleanup, you'll have the cleanest computer in the neighborhood.

Me thinks that's my first major publication acknowledgment.

Thanks Clif.

Oh and btw, the Mar. 4th newsletter was right behind the PCMag link as the #2 referrer. Also have many others peppered thru the list. Always great to see I'm getting some traffic from the newsletter.

I hate this when Tom's site gets mentioned. He starts charging for autographs and pictures. Costs $2.95 a minute just to chat with him.

I just hope this time he remembers the "little people" who got him this far... :|

By the way, congrats Tom! And thanks to Neil for a great article!

That's because you keep asking me for pix of my toes. I know when I can charge and when not to. You fetish guys are a monthly car payment. :P
