I still use this excellent free Ad-bot removal software from Lavasoft with the separate LSP Plugin. The auto-update function within the program doesn't work with either the normal or proxy settings...
So I wrote my own download all you need HERE its a self-exe RAR file and has all you need plus the LSP Explorer Plug for backing up IE7
The latest available defintion files is from March 2009 2009SE1R345.30.03.2009.defs
takes about 10 mins to download when you restart AdAware you will see the updated files
I use the LSP Plugin to backup the registry settings with respect to WinSock2 and in the system32 folder for IE this is a best way to do this you need to install the main program in order use this plugin then the correct keys will be saved if your Winsock ever becomes corrupted.Don't
: download the IE Guard from HERE
from Lavasoft it only works on the later versions of Ad-Aware Note
: this will conflict with McAfee Security Centre installed with the ISP so if you want to use Ad-Aware and have SKY don't bother.
