Spyware is often troublesome to remove. However, one product stands above the rest when it comes to protection against these nasty threats: Spybot Search and Destroy. Winner of awards from PC Magazine, PC World, and Softpedia, among many others, Spybot has gained the trust of hundreds of millions of people when it comes to home security and Spyware removal.
Features of Spybot include:
– Search and Destroy: Scans your computer for thousands of known threats, and providing you the option to remove them.
– Resident TeaTimer: This invaluable firewall prevents programs from executing system commands without your permission, and puts the choice into your hands every time whether or not to let the command execute or to block it. It even lets you choose to save the action so that you don’t have to keep answering the same request over and over.
– Immunize: Scans your computer for known harmful programs and blocks their access to your computer.
Spybot works even on computers as old as Windows Millenium Edition (ME). However, jealous antivirus competitors have made their products ‘incompatible’ with Spybot, and often treat Spybot as a virus program, according to BetaNews.com. You may therefore unfortunately have to choose between Spybot and your mainstream antivirus program.
As Spybot itself has said in a news release:
“Users uninstalling Spybot-S&D 1.6.2 have the option to anonymously submit a reason for doing so, and after a few weeks of these reports, we were able to get a picture of the most common reasons. The top reasons why people uninstall Spybot-S&D are those three malicious antivirus companies who force their users to uninstall our software for so-called, but never proven, incompatibility issues. Against these, all we can do is continuing down the legal road, and the feedback at least helps us getting more exact numbers.”
While Spyware varies in complexity, and some harmful little pests can prove particularly difficult to remove, Spybot Search and Destroy vastly simplifies what is an otherwise complex process.
