If you're not careful on the Web, you can pick up some spyware. Here are my favorite free spyware removal tools. These are the sypware removal tools that I myself have tested out, and best of all, they are all free.
- Spybot: Spybot runs a check on your entire system for malicious malware, spyware, adware, and bots; then, it destroys them. For best results (and to keep your system spyware-free), I recommend Spybot about once a week.
- Ad-Aware: I've used Ad-Aware for years, and it's a great tool. All you do is pick the depth of your system scan and go. Personally, I do a deep system scan about once ever two weeks, and a "lighter" scan about once a week.
Only two? Yep - I've had nothing but good with these two, and I wouldn't want to recommend something I haven't tried. Please let us know in the forums
if there's another spyware removal tool that you think should be on this list.
