Decent Free Anti-Adware

Filed under: Software, Technology — inVINCEble @ 1:42 am

Since I blogged about two free anti-virus, I might as well show you two decent free anti-adware/anti-spyware. Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE Personal and Spybot Search&Destroy are pretty good anti-spyware considering they are free. Both of these run pretty well on my computer. I noticed that it is actually pretty good to have both of these installed because what one misses the other may catch.  When running this program, it will go through your computer and the registry looking for any suspicious program or entry very similar to that of a anti-virus program would do.  Once suspicious entries are found, the program lists them out for you to decide if you want to remove them or not.  The program also gives you the ability to backup the changes in case you want to roll back your removal.  Overall, these are very decent software to use to help guard against spyware and adware.
