Download, install and run Bazooka Adware and Spyware Scanner v1.13.01 and tell me how many spyware you have installed on your computer.

Edit: the above product doesn't uninstall it automaticaly.

http://www.webroot.com/wb/products/spysweeper/index.php does the job, apparently better.

0, I guess my ad-aware and spybot S&D combo works really good.

0, with ad-aware and spybot.
but then again... the only sites I really go on is shroomery.. hotmail..and the rare stint to somewhere else.. and I only go to one porn site..with no popups or spyware.. so it's all good  :cool:

I dont know about that particular program, but a program called  spy sweeper  got some things that ad-aware and spybot missed.

Pretty good program  :thumbup:

OH MAN, ANNO THANK YOU BIG TIME !!! :grin:

My scan detected 4 spyware programs on my registry. I spent the last hour manually removing them and, "WOW" it's like working with a new computer!

Everyone should give this a shot. :thumbup:

I downloaded that, and it gets the job done better than ad aware and spybot IMO.

4, Great program :thumbup:!  I use spyware blaster and iClean and never have any unwanted pop-ups, so I figured I was pretty safe.  Bazooka's scan was done in an instant too, unlike ad-aware (but that removes automatically).

*All 4 (3 actually, one was a false positive from K++) showed up because of leftover registry keys, the spyware programs themselves were already deleted.

Here http://www.spychecker.com/spyware.html . Don't forget to check the downloads page.
Btw, if you use any other browser than iExplorer, like mozilla or opera, you don't get infected with this "ware".

Edit: Just to say, one should install spywareblaster as it "closes the door" on iE to spyware intrusions (but it also closes activex objects). Adware and spybot together are a good combo but i can also say that spysweeper got a couple more than the previous combo, so beware.

Is there any way to have bazooka automatically uninstall spyware? Because right now I don't feel like taking the time/thought process of manually uninstalling.

i also have spysweeper. it did a really good job. i got it because of a really good rating it got in PC magazine. i cant find a link to it on their website, it must only be in the magazine.

I also use Spy Sweeper. It's the best IMHO. And the company that makes it is just down the street from my apartment. :smile:
