    Stick with Ad-Aware or Spy-Bot.
    In fact it is not limited to anti-spyware programs, but much much more...
    Fake anti-virus, anti-trojan, anti-keylogger, leaky firewall...

    To use security-related programs, at least always stick to the known (if not famous) ones. Don't try new unknown anti-XX software. You never know what will happen!!!!!!!!

    You've heard the saying you lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm lead heards that won't drink.
    A while back I fixed up a friends computer for him. Installed spybot on it and anti virus software. Did my friend follow my advise and run & update these programs as advised. (NO!!!) I just got his computer back a couple days ago to work on what looked originally like a mem problem. As it turned out, he did not update his anti virus (Norton's) and did not run and update spybot either. The first thing I did was run spybot to find that his computer was infested with spyware (mainly gator). Not to mention he downloaded and installed Spyware Cop (in the list of false spyware programs.

    nope. people are hard to change, unless they want to. otherwise all you can do is advise them and maybe refuse to help them after a third strike. which limit will usually be ignored by oneself. 'okay, but this is the very last time i'll fix it for you'

    lol yah these have been around for awhile, make sure you always check with a REPUTABLE group of reviews before using a program. I just found WinTasks because I was googling my running processes, so I searched it and it seemed useful. What do you know, it works, and good too. The programs I use are Ad-Aware SE 1.05, Spybot S&D 1.3, WinTasks, PC-Cillin, & HijackThis. These ensure quite good protection and basically render any random new "spyware cleaner" useless as it won't be needed anyway. Though I have seen a couple of my customers try frantically to download "spyware removal" applications that just bring in more and more spyware lol.

    corrupt anti-spyware

    Before choosing any program take a look at the list of corrupt anti-spyware software.
    The list is constantly updated and clear corruption evidence provided.

    on my site i have a list of programs i've tested and confirmed with the guys here that are some great anti-crapware programs. I also link to a site that lists a bunch of known fake anti-crapware programs that you should stay away from (btw...ad-aware and spybot together only detect about 50 to 60% of all the spyware out there. giant anti-spyware (now microsoft anti-spyware beta) was number one and webroot spysweeper was number two hope that helps!

    I have decided something..

    When I win the lottery....

    I will get the nerdiest freaking computer geeks on the face of this earth and have them design me a program and a virus. This program will detect when someones system dumps stuff onto your computer. Then the program will send a virus directly back to the system.

    The virus will make a little pop-up window the says...

    Busted plus dirty words blah blah blah.

    And crash the harddrive.

    Anyways I will make it a free program to all and we can stop retards who do this stuff.

    This will all happen when I win the lottery!

    Is Ad-ware not free anymore? I can't find a free version on their web site or on download.com.

    I got spy-bot, but Ad-ware was a favorite for me.

    ad-aware and spybot are not the end all fix all anti-spyware programs out there. these studies are a few months old, but at that time together they only caught about 76% fo the new spyware out. Giant spyware (now microsoft anti-spyware) was #1 and i believe it still is. If you can get microsoft anti-spyware i recommend it...if not then i recommend spyware doctor (free version is fine!). Lastly, I also recommend a-squared. As a side note the pesky stuff that these things can't remove can usually be nabbed by hijack this....all of these things can be found at my site.

    Thanks for the help. It's really getting crazy, got to have 3 or 4 programs, not just one to clean it all up!
