Bit concerned, how are the above affected by/affects Windows XP Home?, I've looked into all three;-  Ad-Aware installed, I activate it 2 or 3 times a week, & it finds on average 8 to 12 items to "quarantine" each time, ALL low risk, no high so far,[ on one of your member's advice, I quarantine all] I notice that some are M/Sost items, how possible is it that quarantining ANY might be linked with essential programme components, & what exactly does quarantine do/mean? Looked at Mail Washer on your advice, & printed off details, it seems "iffy" as regards Windows XP Home [good ol' XP!] I am still getting loads of these Male Hormone Cream, ads, this morning alone I got twelve!, & am very anxious to get rid, & hope that Mail Washer will help, but only if it does "agree" with XP.  Finally Mc Afee Virus Scan 7.0 2003 version, I have the disc, & again it says, in effect "if you have XP, & it doesn't load, do this, do that etc, I don't want complications, XP can be a real pain, because of iy I've given up trying to install games from discs, some it just completely ignores, no CD drive action, when I do a search they are there, but I still can't install, one even went through the Wizard, & gave me an icon, but STILL I couldn't play it! Thanks for reading this guys, [always in trouble aren't I?] just hope I don't get in bother for grouping all this in one post.
