	I'm a BIG fan of Hijack-This, simply because it gives you so
much data.  With that said, however, it's important to make sure that
what you're planning to delete is indeed unwanted; there are some great
forums around for that (google brings 'em up just fine) if you need to
check with experts.  HT usually turns up several more malicious programs
than S&D and AdAware... I've heard NoAdware is excellent, but I've never
used it.

It was disconcerting seeing the number of "shady" sites with long 
hyphenated urls showing up in google's results, I certainly wondered how

many were legit and how many were peddling misinformation. But that's
only one I found with anything useful to say about that particular piece

What's your site? The one in your sig?

FWIW the only spyware *tools* I'd trust are ad-aware and spybot s&d and 
possibly hijack-this.
