SpywareBlaster is an effective anti-spyware tool. Unlike most anti-spyware programs, it does not scan the hard drive for spyware. Its strategy instead is to prevent modifications of your files and settings. For example, it can block browser toolbars from installing themselves.

SpywareBlaster can be used to prevent changes to Windows' HOSTS file. It also has a System Snapshot feature similar to Windows' System Restore. SpywareBlaster will report any changes to your system since the last snapshot.

if you dont knwo whats going on to your laptop then you should just let someone reformat it or restore it to factory default settings if it has that option.

it probably has lots of startups in your registry or in other words, lots of trash (files that are installed that you dont even use.).

I need free spyware removal. where do you reccommend I go.


CNET has been offering free downloads at www.download.com for a number of years, I trust them to give me spyware free software and have never had a problem there. I use the free AVG Anti-Virus Free that includes anti-spyware prevention for the future. For now go to download.com and get a copy of Spybot search and destroy it is a very easy to use and a great program for removing spyware, another is lavasofts Ad-Aware, personally I use both and run them at least once a week. Here's a link to the Spybot search and destroy;

Broken link


Get Spybot: Search and Destroy, AdAware, Malware Bytes, and SmitFraudFix. Run all of them to remove any malware that you might have on your system. It is possible that you have a redirector on your system, or that somehow it was entered into your hosts file.

Adaware and spybot search and destroy


Yessssss, sorta. Some catch some things, others catch other things. (I hate how Ad-Aware tells me I've had 200 infections when it's all browser cookies -- grrrr).

Anyway, you've got two among the most respected.

Also take a look at:
Windows Defender, from Microsoft -- comes with Vista, free for XP, automatic updates _and_ _always_ _stays_ _running_. It's not the most accurate, but because it's always running you're going to prevent problems instead of catch them.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Just make sure you run the update before each scan.

A-Squared Free. Make sure you run the update before each scan -- and typically there's so many updates the program will have to restart itself.

Don't kill yourself with this stuff unless you're doing some really stupid stuff online. You can fire 'em up every couple weeks or something, with the exception of Defender -- get that now if you're on XP.

System perfomance monitor : Warning


Best solution I have is to download and install Adaware, Spybot Search & Destroy, and Rogue Remover. Google these three and get the latest free versions. None of them will remove everything alone, but the combination is very effective. You might also consider changing your anti-virus software, personally I like AntiVir, but that's a personal choice.
All of these programs are free, and I use them quite a bit.

Good luck!

Got a virus, Norton 2006 expired


Go to www.download.com and search for "avast home edition" or "AVG anti-virus free edition". Both are free and are excellent. Install and scan away. I used to use Norton exclusively but the past couple years I have had problems with it on a number of clients computers. I also recommend "spybot-search and destroy" and "adaware". These are also free and excellent. Many times these days what you think is a virus is actually spyware that is hijacking your browser and your system resources and jamming up your internet connection. Run the Anti-virus first, then spybot, then adaware. They will detect many of the same things, but sometimes only one program will pick up your issue and actually fix it. Spybot and adaware will also come up with a box while installing or running that says it detected your other spyware or antivirus programs and that it may cause a problem, but I have never seen any actual interference. If you still have a problem after this, head over to http://forums.spybot.info/   there are amazing people there who will walk you through anything.
