Free spyware remover

  novis 18:04 03 Apr 2009

Can anyone recommend a FREE spyware scanner - I've had problems with Adaware and Adwatch and would like something that does a thorough scan and removal. I downloaded Stopzilla - only to discover when it has found 64 errors that I'd have to pay to haver them removed.

A programme similar to Advanced WindowsCare would also be appreciated. For some reason it wont download updates.

I run MS Vista on a laptop.

Come on now is it not that simple to use the "search forum" at the top of the page or are you to lazy for doing so??

Best two freebies are Malwarebytes and Superantispyware in that order.

Apologies if you were offended by request for others' recommendations. As a novice I wouldn't know one product from another unless I'd trialled them. My mistake with Stopzilla was the result of me downloading a product on my own initiative. Hopefully others will be more sympathetic.

What anti-virus and firewall do you use.
