Have just downloaded and installed the Microsoft Spyware tool and it does indeed, seem to be very good. It is easy to set up and after doing a deep scan it found one threat, that I didn't know I had.

Many thanks.

It also uses real-time protection so should help stop spyware getting installed.

Some other free programs to try which will almost certainly find some nasties lurking in the dark recesses of your PC.

CWShredder click here

a² Free click here

Stinger click here

And finally a similar program to CCleaner but you may like to try this one as well

Cleanup! click here

This last one deletes all manner of rubbish in your browsers history , however if you wish to know how to do this manually then post back and I will give you details.

Another useful tool is click here the Micro World Anti Virus toolkit, also scans for:- illegal dialers, illegal sniffers or tools like spywares, adware, keylogger etc

Give up on Internet Explorer. Download Mozilla Firefox and surf without pop-ups / spyware being an issue. I've been using this for about two months, and it works like a dream.

What operating system are you using please ?
