    Hello everybody.

    Today, some spyware had been detected in the laptop of my boss, then he ask me what anti-spyware software is the best to scan and clean? But i don't know the answer !o_O

    Please recommend a good on demand scanner( scan and clean).

    Thank you.

    Take a look at the list here

    http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm#trustworthy

    Depending on the type of infection, you might need one or more or possibly none of them might work. You never know.

    Note: some of them will not remove unless you pay.

    Some like Ad-aware, Spybot, SUPERAntiSpyware, Windows defender, AVG Anti-Spyware will clean but the license might restrict to personal user only.

    I'd look at AVG Antispyware,A-Squared,and SUPER Antispyware.
    Choose one or use all as free scanners.;)

    There are many on demand scanners and cleaners available online. A few are noted on my signature line. You can also go directly to any major AV/AS vendor's site to see if they offer any free on demand scanning/cleaning of your system.
