Hi,
I've downloaded and installed the well known cache cleaner known as "spider",
Is it safe to use this on Windows XP? I am concerned if it can do any
damage? I don't mind if it doesn't work but I just want to make sure that it
won't damage anything.

Thanks
Comperio

Well known? I have been in these news groups since their inception and I
believe this is the first time I have heard "this one" mentioned! More info
please.

If you knew as much as you think you know,
You would realize that you don't know what you thought you knew!

Never heard of "Spider cache cleaner"... hope you
didn't pay for it!

Utilize the following maintenance programs, at least monthly,
to maintain the optimum performance of Windows XP:

Hi,

I've not heard anything negative about Spider, and usually if there's a
negative reaction, we'd see it here.
