Spybot Search and Destroy - Spyware Removal Software

By Erik Rodriguez

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


Spybot Search and Destroy is another 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 Spybot doesn't find or can't remove, try using spy sweeper. The newest version of Spybot claims it may have a conflict with Ad-aware. However, I use both together and have not experienced any problems.

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.

Like most other software tools, this one scans your hard drive for traces or "fingerprints" of ad/spyware.

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! Like most others out there this one is FREE! You can download it here.
