Download of the Day - Spybot Search & Destroy

| Software News | Posted: Jan 16, 2003 7:51 am

Over the past day or two there has been some on-going discussion in our forums regarding spyware and a whole bunch of other nasty-wares which companies are using without the majority of us Internet users even having a clue about it - which is the unfortunate part. One of our forum moderators, Mr.C (our legendary spyware master), let us all know about a little, unknown program called Spybot Search & Destroy which some are considering better than Ad Aware since it is updated more regularly than it.

 

I wanted to see what all the fuss was about...So I went ahead and downloaded the much talked about program thinking my system was fairly clean, but not 100% certain. After a two minute search of my file system and registry, it found 233 cases, including a bunch of horrid Gator registry entries and others which performed tasks I had no idea were happening - but explained the unexplained network activity when my computing sessions were inactive and advertisement pop-ups.

 

I tell you, its sure good knowing your system is clean and safe from all the crap which can invade it from time to time! You can download Spybot Search & Destroy from the following URL and let all your anger out regarding malicious use of these xwares by various companies over here in our forums.
