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. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

    Love Spybot 2.0. After 2 weeks of struggling trying to remove Coupon Dropdown, I finally tried Spybot 2.0 and it was the only one that worked--after trying Malwarebytes anti-Malware, McAfee and many others.

    Reviewing 2.3.39 (Apr 29, 2014)

    I like the immunization feature, that's all I like. I run it once a month or so. However, for some reason, SpyBot wants to run on startup every time.

    System services are all deactivated (security center, scanner, updating). All system integration is deactivated/uninstalled. However, for some strange reason, SpyBot runs on startup.

    I have unchecked every option within the program but it still wants to run on startup. WHY? I just want to use the immunization feature. Why is it so difficult to design the application to not run on startup? It is doing absolutely nothing when it runs. It isn't scanning, it isn't immunizing, it isn't updating, WHY IS IT RUNNING ON STARTUP? Why do I need to use a 3rd party tool to remove your application from startup? Honestly it is really simple, don't force your app to run if the user doesn't want it. Who are you to decide you know better?

    After seeing the comment by underscore, I felt I should point to this graph:

    I'ld hardly call that curve "hardly updated".
