How do I get rid of SpyVest? I`ve tried in Add/ Remove but it`s still there and keeps highjacking my home page from Google to MSN.

MSN.com is the default setting for the SpyVest homepage protector, either de-select "Use Homepage protector" or enter your desired homepage in the Advanced settings.

Isn't SpyVest an AdAware knock off?? click here

Suprised by PCA on this one....

Having noted the resemblance between SpyVest and AdAware I checked this site and assumed from what they said that it was based on the previous version of AdAware, indeed I said as much in another post.
I now believe I was wrong, SpyVest appears to be part of a family of anti spy ware programs created by Mladen Bajic, with cosmetic similarities to AdAware, beyond this somewhat pointless design feature there appears to be no connection between the two, my apologies for suggesting there was.
I can't comment on the effectiveness of the software, perhaps PCA can run a test ?
