    hopefully this site should provide newbies and maybe some vets with some insight into how weak microsoft is with privacy/security issues, i think the test also work with variety of browsers, os's etc. pretty cool reading and scary at the same time.

    Yes there is loads of good info on that site.

    The breakdown of Spyware removal tools that is linked there is a good read. It proves that no one removal tool is 100% effective and the recommendations of using at least two I totally agree with.

    Check out the tests here http://spywarewarrior.com/asw-test-guide.htm

    And the comparisons and recommendations here

    Knowledge of these tools and their use is crucial to anyone that is in the business of repairing PCs.
