    Spyware & Adware

    I have a lot of this stuff on my computer. I'm using BAZOOKA SCANNER, which detects spyware easily, but the removing process is too long.

    Does anyone know of a fast and efficient way of detecting and removing spyware and adware from your computer system? what software would you recommend? (freeware and/or trial).

    Bazooka scanner? I have never even heard of that.

    First of all, there was already a post similar to this one. Anyway, for your sake, here are the top 3 Spyware programs that I would recommend:

    Spybot, Microsoft's BETA removal tool, and Ad-Aware (my personal favorite).

    firefox isn't the end-all be-all solution. think of firefox as the front line and spybot/adaware as the secondary. firefox won't stop everything, but it sure beats downloading even more 3rd party software to alleviate the problem.
