    Do you mean that we will have to stop lurking at the other major leagues teams sites, to stop ogling and leering over their better statistics? I donít know if I can survive a day without a fix, seeing real OBP and SLG and drooling.

    Actually, I did a search for 'homo sapen' that took me to a naughty homosexual site. I'm guessing that's where it came from.

    warez.com is the worst. never go there. p2p sites are just as bad.

    a few tips. do not run more than 1 spyware scanner. it causes problems.

    Ad Aware is great, but I'd go with a one stop shopping solution: AVG.

    Anti-spyware/Anti-rootkit:
    http://www.avg.com/home-and-office-security-comparison

    Anti-virus:
    http://free.avg.com/download-avg-ant...s-free-edition

    They have pay versions, but both of these will do for average users.

    Also get a better firewall than the one provided by windows. Here is one free option:

    ZoneAlarm:
    http://www.zonealarm.com/store/conte...firewall_b.jsp

    There are probably a dozen more. Just google free firewall.

    Mostly agree about the browsers. However, IE7 is much improved as far as security goes, and IE8 is due to be released some time in the next couple of months. The beta is available now, and it does have increased security as well. That said, IE will always be a bigger risk.

    While it's a bad idea to run more than one antivirus utility, it's OK and even a good idea to run more than one spyware utility. I run Ad-Aware every few weeks after the Norton suite does its thing.

    I have been using Spybot and Ad-Aware, and Ad-Aware didn't detect any of my latest problems (but Spybot did).

    My whole problem stemmed from having the firewall turned off, I'm pretty sure. I'm going to give ZoneAlarm a shot.

    In previous versions of AdAware, it would detect Spybot as malware. that may have been corrected. It is NOT a good idea to have more than one inline scanner running at one time. that can cause some problems.
