Q: How can I get rid of Adware and Spyware?
A: There are many programs out there that claim to get rid of Adware and Spyware. The problem is that many of those programs get rid of their compentition and make room for their own Adware and Spyware. In my experience, I have tried MANY of these programs and have found two that are very reliable. Infact, I frequenlty run them one after the other to make sure a computer is clean.
Ad-Aware SE and SpyBot 1.3 are both excellent programs for this very purpose. Both can be downloaded from download.com and AdAware has their own site at Lavasoft.
Once you install and run these programs, you will first want to check for any new updates. Both programs typically have weekly updates that you will want to have before performing a system scan.
SpyBot offers an extra feature that you will find valuable for future protection. The immunize feature will not add new programs to your windows system. It realizes that windows has a lot of built in protection and simply lets windows know what to protect you from.
These are free programs that you can download and install anytime.
