Using Spybot S and D – Tutorial included
Posted by cotojo on May 23, 2007
Spybot – Search and Destroy is an Adware and Spyware detection and removal tool.
It includes removal of certain advertising components, which may gather statistics as well as detecting various keylogging and other spy utilities.
It securely removes PC and Internet usage tracks, including your browser history, temporary pages, cookies (giving you the option to keep selected cookies) and more. The program interface is easy to use and multi-lingual.
SpyBot-S&D allows you to exclude selected cookies, programs or extensions from being reported, allowing you to prevent false positive messages for items that you don’t want to be alerted of every time.
It can even scan your download directory for files that have been downloaded, but not yet installed, allowing you to detect unwanted programs before you even install them.
SpyBot produces a detailed and easy to understand report before it deletes any files and allows you to deselect any item that you do not want to be processed.
It also incorporates a recovery feature allows you to restore your settings if you need to which can be very useful.
Please Note: There will be many entries added to your Registry, this is normal and simply flags known malware sites as blocked.
This program has to be updated and run manually.
