SpyBot 1.4 - Clean and protect your computer from Spyware

Spybot Remove Spyware

Spybot - Search & Destroy can detect and remove spyware of different kinds from your computer. Spyware is a relatively new kind of threat that common anti-virus applications do not yet cover.

If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you didn't intentionally install, if your browser crashes, or if you browser start page has changed without your knowing, you most probably have spyware.

But even if you don't see anything, you may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging that is silently tracking your surfing behavior to create a marketing profile of you that will be sold to advertisement companies. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm in trying to see if something snooped into your computer, too :)

If you want an introduction how Spybot-S&D works, please read the tutorial on the spybot web site .

Spybot is a two step process. First you can immunize your computer to prevent Spyware from getting in. However this does not replace a good Antivirus and firewall. Secondly you can scan and remove spyware from your system. I would normally install Spybot to immunize and clean a system and then install the Microsoft Anti spyware beta to keep the system clean.

This file is downloaded as a compressed zip file. This is great if you have Windows XP or Winzip installed. If you don't then you will need a compressed file utility. I think the best free / trail version for windows is WinRar. Download here.
