SpywareRemoval

Spyware Protection/Cleaners:

The following programs can be installed to help stop spyware and to clean your computer.

General Virus Cleaners:

Software to clean an infected computer.

  • Housecall Virus Scanner: Free virus/spyware scanner from Trendmicro.
  • McAfee Stinger: Downloadable software to protect against common virus threats.
  • Trend Micro Sysclean: Cleans a variety of viruses from your system. Not as thorough as Housecall, but does not require an Internet connection.
Others:

  • Windows Defender: Scans and protects your computer from spyware. Highly recommended. Built into Windows Vista.
  • Ad-Aware: Performs a scan of your computer for spyware. Very thorough, but needs to be run manually.
  • Spyware Blaster: Prevents spyware from being installed. Run it once to set protections; it does not have to be running to protect. However, you do need to manually update it to keep your protection up to date.
