    If you want to spend money, try the CounterSpy or Spy Sweeper on set with Spybot-S&D and SpywareBlaster.

    For free, use MS AntiSpyware with Spybot-S&D and SpywareBlaster... ;)

    Spyware Doctor is very good, but not so good as CounterSpy, Spy Sweeper or MS AntiSpyware...

    Spybot is a good anti-spyware. :)
    What about spydoctor? I thought it was a rogue,
    but I can't find it anymore on the rogue list. :doubt: (see link in my sig).

    I've all of the tools VaMPiRiC_CRoW suggested :D, except MS AntiSpyware and Spyware Doctor.
    Was a registered user of Giant, but not anymore.

    You can't go wrong with those suggested.
    These a really excellent tools to fight the everlasting battle. ;)

    Found Spydoctor here. :p
    Is it the same you're having, because it's a rogue.
    Spyware Doctor isn't a rogue. A little difference in the name, that's all.

    Good luck on your trials. ;)

    These are just cookies, so I don't know why they would crash your OS. o_O
    Maybe someone else knows more. ;)

    I made confusion with Spyware Doctor... :(

    As Eldar said, the SpyDoctor is on the rogue list ...

    And Spybot-S&D isn't only an AntiSpyware, but also a good utility to resolve some system problems... ;)

    No problem, I should have expressed myself better. :oops:
    Rogue = not to be trusted

    Using those rogue anti-spyware could do more harm to your system then good. Some even come with spyware. :mad:
    Reminds me of my first rogue 'Maxion Spykiller', so I've been down that road too.

    Stick to the ones mentioned here and the trustworthy applications on that list. ;)
    It's not first and certainly not the last time confusion will arise with those names.
    Happened to me too at SWF. ;)
     
  11. I use Spyware Doctor it's a good anti-spyware program. It does a good job of removing spyware too, not just finding it. It's definitely not a rogue. Some say SpySweeper and CounterSpy are better, but I just use MSAS, it's free and it seems just as good as SS or CS, so far. But I also use many other pay and free programs to prevent spyware.
