Some might think that it's overkill but it's a good idea to run multiple spyware proggies. They each catch some that the others don't. Keep in mind that all of these can be found on http://www.download.com
for free. I highly recommend SpywareBlaster 3.2
. It doesn't remove them but rather blocks them from making it to your computer. The others that I have are Ad-Aware 6.0
, Spybot S&D, SpySweeper
, and Pest Patrol. In the least, I would recommend the bolded ones.
