Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

As you might have gathered from my last post, I was able to get an ADSL connection for my home from our local telecom provider. Being connected has brought up a very new issue I have to fight, i.e. Spyware.

Previously being disconnected, spyware wasnt much of an issue, but now I have to fight them off/stay away from them, tie them to a post and burn them (well that sort of thing), and heaven forbid if anything happens to my registry.

Anyways I've found one Spyware remover which is pretty good. Its called 'Spybot: Search and Destroy' and you can find it here.

The other anti-spyware utility I tried was 'XoftSpy', unfortunately it left out a few so it was Spybot to the rescue.

Spybot is a very good program. This site contains reviews of programs and other tips.

Xoftspy is the software that I currently use and to date I've experienced no serious problems but Spybot is definitely worth considering.
