Works with Windows Vista(TM) Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behavior to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.
This is one of my favorite program's... It's actually my first install whenever I setup a new system.
The goal of this program is to help rid your system of unwanted spyware, adware, and various nasties which could render your system otherwise bloated or inoperable.
The program also is free and allows the users free updates so that you're hardly ever behind... It's not a commercial program, so I recommend that if you find it useful, donate $5 to the author for making a great freeware program...
Also, on an ending note, this program has even been featured on TechTV's "The Screen Savers"... Gotta kiss a lotta tuccus to get on there ;)...
