One of the first tools I go to in the event of a suspected internet induced infection is SuperAntiSpyware. Over the years I have time-tested a variety of products to protect my system, which were good at their specific functions, but I have come to the conclusion that using SuperAntiSpyware, in conjunction with my anti-virus protection, provides a multi-dimensional layer of protection that is really hard to beat. SuperAntiSpyware will detect and remove spyware, adware, malware, trojan dialers, worms, keyloggers, hijackers, parasites, rootkits, rogue security products and other threats. Another primo feature that is most impressive is that it will not rob your system of its’ needed operating system resources and slow your computer down.
There is a “FREE” version, as well as a paid professional version. The “FREE” option does not include the scheduling, automatic updates, daily definition updates, or real-time protection that the professional version offers. Do not let this deter you from using the “FREE” version. I had been using the “FREE” version for over a year, where I performed manual updates and scans; and, just recently started using the professional version to give my system that additional armor of “automated” protection. Many computer techs out there use this software and will tell you to make it part of your routine maintenance and security strategy.
