Spybot – Search & Destroy is a must-have anti-spyware tool which detects and removes all sorts of spyware, adware, dialers etc from your computer which are not yet taken care by common anti-virus applications.
Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven’t intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been “hijacked” (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don’t see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging.
Spybot-S&D can also clean usage tracks, an interesting function if you share your computer with other users and don’t want them to see what you have been working on. And for professional users, Spybot-S&D allows you to fix some registry inconsistencies and extended reports.
The free Spybot-S&D software allows choosing the spyware for removal which can be sent directly to the included file shredder, ensuring complete elimination from your system. Besides it also allows fixing Registry inconsistencies related to adware and to malicious program installations.
The online-update feature of Spybot-S&D ensures that Spybot always has the most current and complete listings of adware, dialers, and other uninvited system residents.
Version 1.4 has the first native multi-installation scanner, is noticeably faster than version 1.3 during scans, and has improved the tools and updated the interface.
