Hi All,

What do you guys recommend for spyware/adware detection and removal?

I've just re-installed super anti-spyware free addition as the old version was freezing.

maybe there should be a sticky thread with this kind of information with links to preferred software. maybe include anti-virus software as well.

cheers

I like Microsoft Security Essentials and MalwareBytes myself...SpyBot is also good. Those three catch just about everything without really bogging your system down (unlike Norton....)
