Free Anti-Spyware Software


If you ever had programs unexpectedly installing on your system, popping up advertisements, saying voice advertisements or playing music, changing (hijacking) your home page (or start page), modifying your search results, displaying search results when you hit a 404 file not found page, dialing out, and so on, your system has probably been compromised by some spyware, adware, trojan, hijacker or dialer.

Free Spyware/Adware/Trojans/Hijackers/Dialers/ Keyloggers Detection, Prevention, Removal

Loosely speaking,spyware is a program that has been installed on your system that reports something back to the software writer (or website that installed it) eg. info about the websites you visit or your activities on the computer. Adware is a program that displays adverts in your browser, often multiple layers of adverts which eventually overpower your computer's ability to display web pages.

Keyloggers record the keystrokes you type on your computer or send screenshots to the entity which installed them.

This page lists some sites and software that you can use to detect spyware, adware, trojans, hijackers, dialers and keyloggers on your PC. Some of them will also remove them, and others when installed and run will prevent some of these nasties from being installed in the first place.
