    There are also classics on the web.

    Ad-aware:

    and good old Spybot:

    But as fast as we make a better mouse trap, the universe invents the better mouse.

    Hope this helps

    For your Anti-Adware and Anti-Spyware needs...............

    Pick and choose at least 2 anti-spywares from the list below and alternate scanning with them on a regular basis. New spywares are created literally hourly, so no single anti-spyware can really detect all malware. Have at least 2 on hand and alternate scanning with each every few days or so. All are free. All can remove as well as detect.

    Spybot Search and Destroy:

    Unfortunately, many "paid for" anti-spyware products are in fact either of limited usefulness or downright scams. When in doubt, look at the list of rogue anti-spyware solutions listed here:

    the best is called Avast and you can dowload it free on the website. Works way better than the expensive ones like Norton and does not bog down you computer. Go to the website below. My friends and I all have used Avast for years and have never had a virus or any other problems.

    Yup, I use AdAware & SpyBot Search & Destroy.

    They're both very good programs and are free. If one doesn't pick up a certain spyware, the other will.

    If it is just for your home PC I love McAffe. You can obtain it mostly free and it does the job the way it is supposed to. Also...besides the free version you can obtain through, for example your home page, you can purchase extras to back it up even more. Good luck.
