Free Spyware for Windows

8 posts in this topic

Ad-Aware SE is also good. Unlike antivirus and some other, you can multiple of these in conjunction with usually no problems

Why does it need to be open source though if you dont have a great grasp of how spyware works? I dont know if there is much available for open source in this area that is updated as much as these ones.

Here you go Overcat, try a few of my favorites out. What I recommend installing for sure is SpywareBlaster (or IE-SpyAD if you insist on Internet Explorer).

Spyware "firewalls" for *prevention*

It's important to update these. Spywareblaster must be manually updated by opening the program and clicking update.

Since you said it, do you have a great grasp of how spyware works?

0vercat, there are no open source programs AFAIK. The people that write these programs spend a lot of time testing, infecting and reversing in order to make sure their software works and is given away for free. If I were them, I'd keep my source closed as well.

If it's spyware you want, just run Internet Explorer and make sure you click yes when the ask about activex.
