-We have all suffered from this menace at some point of time or other. Let’s see what spyware is. According to wikipedia:

Spyware is computer software that is installed surreptitiously on a personal computer to intercept or take partial control over the user’s interaction with the computer, without the user’s informed consent.

In short spyware is a program that monitors your system/online activity or installs other programs without your concent. According to a report by webroot (A and program), 9 out of 10 PCs which are connected to internet are infected with some spyware and around 10 million American consumers suffer from an annual loss of 5 billion dollars and businesses with a loss of $48 billion.

and Spyware removal are the programs that should be installed to remove and protect you from the problem of spywares. Following are the top 5 spyware removal and spyware bloking programs available for Windows. We are not discussing Spyware Removal and for Mac/Linux users:

1. Ad-aware 2008

Lavasoft Ad-aware 2008 is the most popular spyware removal and prevention software available. It comes available free for individual usage. There are other flavours available too which are paid and require license.

Publisher’s note

The world’s most popular anti-spyware!

Protect yourself against identity theft, online fraud, and other with the world’s most popular anti-spyware.

2. Search and Destroy

Spyware bot search and destroy is another great free Anti-spyware tool available. Unlike, adaware spyware removal, spybot has only free version and you can donate for the development and improvement of this great tool.

Publisher’s Note

Spybot – Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies.

3. Webroot Spysweeper

Webroot Spyweeper is my favorite anti-spyware and spyware protection program. The reason it’s my favorite is that it is best in catching spywares which other spyware removal programs fail to detect.

Publisher’s note

Webroot Spy Sweeper is a tool used to stay safe from spyware, adware, keyloggers, and Trojans, all of which can lead to identity theft and fraud. With Webroot Spy Sweeper installed on your PC, you can use the Internet without fear of infection.

4. Spyware Doctor

Spyware doctor is another very popular anti-spyware from PCTools. It comes as time-unlimited trial version and can keep you away from new threats after installing. However, to get rid of existing threats you need to shed out $29.95.

Publisher’s note

Spyware Doctor is a top-rated malware & spyware removal utility that detects, removes and protects your PC from thousands of potential spyware, adware, trojans, keyloggers, spybots and tracking threats. Protect your privacy and computing habits from prying eyes and virtual trespassers with the help of Spyware Doctor.

5. Spyware Blaster

Spyware Blaster is state of art free anti-spyware and malware by Javacool softwares. Again this little beauty is absolutely free. However, you can donate for the continuation and betterment of Spyware Blaster.

Publisher’s note

doesn’t scan for and clean spyware–it prevents it from being installed in the first place. prevents the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, dialers, browser hijackers, and other potentially unwanted programs.

We have tried to bring to you the best of anti-spyware solution available and hence this is not the complete list. You might want to check other an-spyware and spyware blockers in the market.

If you want a completely free spyware we suggest Spyware search and destroy. However, if you want to shed some money to get a great anti-spyware, you might want to but Webroot spy sweeper.

    I had installed spyware software lately, but it was really interupted my PC operation systems. Should I disable antivirus first before install spyware tools?

    They are good but in the end you should just buy one. One that has almost daily updates and a team of programmers behind it combatting any new threats. Considering how much you spend on hardware it's really not worth skimping on a few bucks to get really good spyware software installed.

    You get what you pay for. The FREE ones are ok but you need something really decent to protect you. Spyware Doctor is great.
