      told you im just learning...!!
      Ad-Aware

      Ad-Aware will run at startup when you first turn your pc on, you will notice the little tray icon in the bottom right corner.

      Run Ad-Aware every 1-2 weeks to get rid of little traces like tracking cookies etc, you can run 2 different types of scan Smart and Full, Smart is quick, only takes around 5 mins but only scans the essential parts of your system whereas Full will scan all of your system but will take anywhere from 20 mins - 1hr depending how many files you have on your pc.

      Everytime before you run a scan, update the definitions using the Web Update Icon.

      Spybot Search and Destroy

      Spybot is similar to Ad-Aware but it also includes an Immunization Tool which will help prevent malicious programs being installed on your pc.

      To Update Spybot, Select Update in the left pane and you will be guided through the process of downloading each definition file. Once the updates have been downloaded, click the Immunize Icon to load the definitions, make sure your browser (IE or Firefox) is closed and click Immunize.

      Run Scans every few weeks.

      Spyware Blaster

      All you need to do with Spyware Blaster is Update and Immunize.

      To Update, Select Updates, Download the definitions and Click Enable All Protection.

      Hope you find this useful mate, let me know if you encounter any problems and ill see what i can do! As for your xbox, i know how you feel, sent mine off to Germany a while back and i was without it for a week, but it killed me!
