Ad-Aware - Spyware Removal Software

By Erik Rodriguez

This article provides a small tutorial on spyware removal. Using the Ad-aware software is a quick and easy way to remove tracking cookies and other traces of ad/spyware.


Ad-aware is easily the most popular removal tool for ad/spyware. It is quick, easy, and it doesn't bog down your system. This software will catch most of the annoying programs and files that cause pop-up ads and all that other stuff we hate. If you encounter something ad-aware doesn't find or can't remove, try using spy sweeper. You can download ad-adware here.

The images below show various stages of the detection/removal process. This software works great on any version of Windows and does not use an enormous amount of CPU time like some others. Below are a few screen shots of this program in action.

First, this software will identify all currently running system processes. It will then scan your Windows registry and other areas of your hard drive. The most impressive thing about this step is the speed.

Next, all entries identified will be reported. Following the list, you have the option to remove/quarantine the selected files. This software should be run every week or so, depending on how frequently you surf the Internet. It is easy to use and works great! The personal version is FREE! They do offer paid versions for corporate users, but the free version does everything the normal user would need done.
