Anti Spy ware programs for free

As far as free Anti Spy ware programs go; these are a few of the best free ones that I have used. Every body likes Spybot search and destroy. It’s an all time favorite! SpybotsHome page.

Another really good one that I use all the time is; AdAware Personal SE.

Microsoft’s Windows Defender is a free program that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software. It features Real-Time Protection and a monitoring system that recommends actions against spyware when it’s found.

Mal Ware is another kind of “nasty”, it likes to screw up things on you’re machine. Other wise known as or called Trojans. These like to down load things into temporary folders, and any other directory it chooses; things like .dlls and installers.Down loaders will down load on every boot. The installers will install on every boot. Thats why you will see the same things show up, scan after scan. Even after you have removed them. Try this one out for piece of mind.

I guess the bottom line is that you need more than one scanner. Just don’t run them at the same time. It’s fun to see what you can catch after a trip around the Internet.

Have fun and stay safe. Stop on by the Geek site
