Prevention & Removal of Ad & SpyWare

By konnected ·
What are some of the best solutions to remove, and to possibly prevent Ad-ware and Spy-ware. I have used a number of different programs, but just need some new opinions I guess, any would be greatly appreciated

In addition to Spybot search and Destroy you can use adaware from lavasoft and spy sweeper from webroot (~$30/yr) for removal.

why not prevent in the first place, get Zonealarm Pro (~$30/yr)or some other Good firewall to block in the first place!!

I run these on a regular basis.

Turn off system restore if it is used in your os.

Download, update, and run the following.

Your Antivirus Software



This item will not update through the program. You have to download the new version.

Look for the file in English CWShredder.exe


StartUpList is information only. Startup, Registery, and others. You can?t fixanythingfrom within the program.

Hijack This:

Hijack This
This program is useful in that it shows what is currently loading on startup. You must know what is good and what is bad. Once you check it and fix it is gone. So be sure. Items you are not sure of do a Google search for them.

Run Your Antivirus again

Download and install all OS updates.

Good Luck Lee
