We all need a spyware stopper, which one do you think is the best and which one do you use?????


I am using ADaware 6.0 and spybot Search and destroy, which one do you use???

I use MS Anti Spyware, Webroot, Hijack.

Seem to do the trick for me!!

Kind regards

I would also install Spyware Blaster and Spyware Guard in addition to those you have got. Both these free programs prevent the spyware getting on to your computer in the first place, rather than removing it later.

using firefox instead of internet explorer works for me

Personally I use Spybot Search & Destroy as my main spyware catcher with Ad-Aware on the side for once-a-week scans...

Also, I use Mozilla Firefox to make sure the spyware I encounter is at a minimum and also Avast! Antivirus to keep it all clean :)

I use Spywareguard and SpywareBlaster from javacoolsoftware but try SpySweeper too - this is available as a trial download offer realtime scanning and on demand. Others use Bazooka to check system is clean.

Ms antispy adaware and firefox instead of ie do the job for me

adaware + spybot S&D + a squared + spyblaster are all updated regularly and seem to do the job for me.

i had a quick play with ms antispy and didnt really like it, to be fair i did not give it a chance really but i am sticking with what i know works for now.

I use adware, spyblaster, spyguard also us a tool called CCleaner more of a cleanup utility but very effective.
