What are you guys using for free spyware removal? I had a good remover before my comp got zapped. I can't remeber what it was though? A lot of the spyware I have found recently says it is free, checks your comp, but you have to pay for removal. TIA

Ad-aware SE http://www.lavasoft.de/software/adaware/ for removal. Spyware blaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html for blocking spyware. It's great. Spy Sweeper is pretty good, but it costs money. Windows has a program out called Windows Defender. Also free. Other options include Spybot Search & Destroy.

Good advice. I would add Microsoft's Spyware software (free) to the list. They built the vulnerability...they know best how to fix it

It used to be Microsoft Antispyware. http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx Are my posts invisible or something? If they were, I don't suppose you'd be able to tell me anyway. :D

No, not invisible...I just didn't read it. Mostly, I was just sparing with Billy

Sorry, bro
