RE: CAN YOU TELL ME THE BEST SPYWARE TO USE. EVERYTIME I DO AN INTERNET SEARCH EVERY PRODUCT SAYS ITS T

be careful, some of these "free" antispyware utilities are actually a good way to infect your system with spyware... these removal/scaning tools are in fact spyware themselves in disguise. Take a look at Spybot as already suggested, but also look at Adaware & SUPERAnti-spyware. failing that look at Xoftspy & also Spysweeper if you want a paid utility. Personally speaking i wouldn't use Zone-Alarm, it's riddled with holes & pretty easy to bypass, mainly as it's the most popular firewall out there, so there are people continualy writing programs to exploit it - you would be better off just using the Windows firewall as it's just as good or bad (depending of course if you view the glass as half empty or half full). If you want a good free firewall utility i'd say you should try the PC-Tools firewall plus.

RE: I dont know my comuter''s name. Can you please tell me that how can I know

go into the system properties in the control panel & click "system". Open up the window & the open tab will be the general tab, next to this is the computer name tab, which shows the name of the PC on the network & the workgroup. I'm assuming this is the information you want.

RE: Failed USB Pen Drive

if numerous drives are failing & this is a regular occurace where drives are not being recognised etc, one thing i've noticed & this also applies with many USB leads. In many cases i've noticed the repeated removal/insertion of the pen-drive actually wears the contacts on the USB drive, so it loses it's continuity. In some cases a quick clean up with a pencil eraser on the USB plug corrects the problem. Also it's worth remembering, the weight.. a USB stick is quite weighty when compared to a plug used on a camera lead & that extra weight puts a noticable strain on the USB plug on the devive & socket on the PC/Laptop it's plugged into. If you use USB sticks regularly it may be worth investing in a USB extension lead so you can put the stick on a desktop surface at the end of a wire, so the table surface takes all the strain instead of it being stuck out the back of the machine & of course having that stuck out the back of a machine can also make it prone to knocks & damage.
