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.

Reviews of Spybot - Search & Destroy

  1. 3 out of 5 stars

    Reviewing 2.4.40 (Mar 2, 2015)

    Still appreciate some of Spybot's functions (immunization of browsers, hosts). Not sure it's needed these days (modern antivirus do much of this in realtime). The 2.x interface is sadly still a total mess, clunky, modulated, loathsome. Always debating whether to go back to 1.x, or hold out hope for 2.x...

    Reviewing 2.3.39 (May 13, 2014)

    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.
