Default What anti-spyware software do you use?

I always have spyware on my computer. I think I get it from my "Get Paid to Read" mails. You see, I am a member of a lot of GET PAID TO sites. I hate spywares but I can't stay away from my GPTos. I run my Spybot search and destroy every two days. Sometimes I run Ad-Aware too. I never really catch really bad spywares from my GPT sites so running these softwares is enough.

Hi,
You HAVE to scan in safe mode is the first rule, many bugs, spies etc. will only partly be removed, if at all, when runing normal mode, SAFE MODE is the ONLY way to clean house.

Download all you will need, updated versions, or new signatures etc. (your antivirus, hijackthis, Spybot etc.) before going in safe mode. Search the Net for as many specific threats on your Computer as you can find, search for MANUAL REMOVAL GUIDES for the specific bugs you found on your computer. They will tell you what online scans and other programs are needed for specific infections removal.

Lots of fun ahead.

Ciao.
only a combination of progs. will be successfull removing every spy, virus, trojan etc. from your Comp.

I definitely am NOT reccomending MacAffe and Nortons, they clog up your system too much + there is better out there

Post 3 programs solved my internet security problems by using them simultaneously

Hi, People

Want to share with you the results of my work. I've discovered that these 3 programs solved my
security problems by using them simultaneously.

1. XoftSpy-SE (the biggest base of detected spyware programs) +
Web-site: XOFTSPYSE - Web

2. Netcom Internet Security (complete protection from viruses including firewall) +
Found it here: Netcom Internet Security Suite - Registry and Spyware Cleaner Free Scan, improve PC performance & Fix PC Errors

3. SpyBot Search and Destroy (the only freeware anti-spyware program!)
Web-site: http://www.safer-networking.org/

These programs are from the the different manufacturers and they do have different threats definitions bases but in a complex they cover 99.8%! of all known threats. These numbers are taken from the direct comparison of the 18 popular antivirus programs so it can be trusted.

Keep your computers safe! Good luck

Regards,
Mark

Ada-ware and SpyBot works fine for me. But sometimes it can get rid of high risk spyware like the one that enter my system, I can't remember The name of the spy ware but it changes my Wallpaper to it's link. And whenever I remove it to my systems. I goes back again when i Booted up my PC.

Hi, Trouble with ad-ware is it seems to lag on the common threats and so you have to alway do a manual update and re-run a scan to be 100% sure.
Spybot - OK but if you have slow connection it can become an issue

I did use Avg's Anti-Spyware, until they brought out 8.0. Now the programs quite bulky. So, I now use Malwarebytes Anti-malware. Free and all that. Does a pretty damn good job.
