Detect and remove different kinds of spyware from your computer

  • Lots of options
  • Powerful search
  • Regular Updates
  • Updating can be slow
  • Indiscriminate about files it removes

Search & Destroy can detect and remove spyware of different kinds from your computer. Spyware is a relatively new kind of threat that common anti-virus applications do not yet cover. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you didn't intentionally install, if your browser crashes, or if you browser's start page has changed without your knowing, you most probably have spyware. But even if you don't see anything, you may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging that is silently tracking your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile of you that will be sold to advertisement companies.

Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm in trying to see if something snooped into your computer, too

"Disappointed "

I am a bit disappointed. I have been using spybot for years now and recently a new hijacker came out called it hijacks your home page your search engines and every time you remove it from your browser the next time you open the browser it's there again. I ran spybot when I restarted my computer, I ran spybot as an administrator and it is not helping me one bit with this hijacker. Don't they follow what is going on on the web? Everyone is complaining about this dosearches and even though I was able to rely on spybot to keep my computer safe until now I have to look for a software that will get rid of this annoying horrible malware :(
