Remove Spyware, Adware and Other Pests

Removing spyware can be more complicated than uninstalling other pieces of software. The spyware creators often set up their programs so that they will reinstall themselves even after being removed. Thankfully, there are many programs available to help you clean out the unwanted programs. Some are free, some cost a few dollars, if it gets rid of the spyware, it's worth it. I use a combination of free and paid services and they keep my computer clean.

First up is SpyBot. This is a free program (they will accept donations) which currently checks for about 38,000 different problems. You can download Spybot at http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/. I run it about once a week.

Another great free program is Ad-Aware by Lavasoft. Ad-Aware can find and remove various problem programs such as data-miners, browser hijackers, Trojans and more. You can download the free program at http://www.lavasoft.de/software/adaware/. Lavasoft also produces a plus version which gives you real time protection as it runs continually in the background.

I also use a program called CounterSpy by Sunbelt Software. CounterSpy is not freeware, but is priced at a very reasonable $19.95 per year. CounterSpy runs continually in the background, providing your computer with up to date protection against spyware programs.
