    Access certain bookmarks. They just show up as null and I cannot delete them off of my browsers bookmarks tool bar. What the fuck happened? Im using FF and I uninstalled Spybot and even did a system restore to 4 days ago and still nothing.

    Why the heck are you using spybot?

    Use malwarebytes or superantispyware (havent used this so not exactly sure if its better than malwarebytes)

    I don't think there's anything wrong with it, but there are better programs out there.

    It never got rid of my spyware.

    Scan
    Find stuff
    Remove
    Scan again 2 seconds later
    Find same stuff
    Remove

    are you talking about SAS?

    did it ask for a reboot?

    Nothing is wrong with it.

    What's wrong is people who are convinced that only the product they use is good enough.

    Usually it's an issue of needing an antivirus as well as the antispyware.

    Spybot along with Spyware blaster, an antivirus and full updates is a very competent combination of protection.
