- Malware Guide - Spyware removal tools

Not unlike our own extensive Spyware and Adware Removal Guide to have gone up recently, ArsTechnica have finished a second segment to their malware guide, this time explaining the best way to rid yourselves of that pesky spyware rubbish with some of the more reknowned and trusted removal tools easily accessible on the net.


As we saw in part one of this two-part series, spyware is a rampant problem. This is clear to anyone who engages in even the slightest bit of field support. The scenario is so typical, the diagnosis is instant. A user complains about a slow computer; programs don't start as fast as they used to, pop-ups continually flood the screen - you know how to identify the problem. But the solution?
