Spybot Search & Destroy
Spybot Search & Destroy checks your system against a comprehensive database of adware and other system invaders. It also features several interface improvements, including multiple skins for dressing up its appearance. Scan results now appear arranged by groups in a tree, and a sliding panel lets you instantly view information about a selected item to help you decide whether to kill it or not. The Immunize feature blocks a plethora of uninvited Web-borne flotsam before it reaches your computer.
- Secure Shredder complements the program's basic functionality for completely destroying files.
- System Startup lets you review which apps load when you start your computer.
- Hosts File blocks adware servers from your computer.
