of course norton systemworks sucks at removing this kinda crap so i am using ad-aware v1.05 build.

i heard from andrewhui that "spyware xterminator" is the best program in the market. is that so?

and what are u using and why is it better
 
Kaspersky AntiVirus, because...., because..., It's Russian program. :D
 
Theres nothing like _THE_ best tool. They use diffrent search routines, with different pros and cons..use two different programs and you should be fine.
 
I download many trialversions, they won't remove all spam at once, but what the first program won't remove, the second will do.

Ad-aware.
 
Always

Adaware SE Personal Edition (FREE)
Spybot S&D (FREE)

Webroot Spy Sweeper (PAY, BUT ITS EXCELLENT)

on the tech help sites I go, always recommend the free ones, usually does the job, any nigglies left over and HijackThis gives us a clear picture.
 
yep adaware and spybot search and destroy, then Hijackthis for any really gitish stuff

Well, you said exactly the same thing I did ;)
[EDIT]Read it again...my post might have been a little misleading[/EDIT]
 
well... you should just use your common sense and only allow cookies from trusted sites to be saved on your com... thats what I'm doing
 
Or use Firefox. I stopped doing Ad-Aware scans because the results always came up empty.
