Free Spyware Blockers websites - Top 3 Best free spyware removal program

Updated on March 1, 2010

3 Awesome downloads for spyware blocker removal

True Story - My computer seemed to behave strangely and slowly.When I went to the Google books site, it warned me that it could not search because it was getting a lot of requests from my machine. I panicked and understood it might be a virus, spyware or adware. I already had antivirus running in my machine but it never complained.

The free downloads I recommend for removing Adaware and Spware are:

#1 - LavaSoft Ad-aware free edition

This award winning software provides real time protection against malware , spyware, trojans, adware etc. Its an awesome product. I downloaded this product and disconnected the Internet first. After that, I ran this product and it found the culprit trojan which was w32 worm.

Not satisfied, I went ahead and downloaded my next best free software for malware protection

#2 - Spybot - Search and Destroy

This is yet another award winning software that runs on Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/NT. I ran this software as well to catch any other undetected spyware in my machine. Again disconnect the internet and run this, preferably in safe mode. When you run this, please turn lavasoft off. You cannot run both the software simultaneously. The only problem with this software is that it is highly integrated with Internet explorer and can cause Internet explorer to behave weird.

#3 - Windows Defender from Microsoft

This runs on Windows 7 operating system as well. It is Microsoft's answer to fighting spyware and malware threats. It is a noble effort by Microsoft and is available as download for those who possess genuine editions of Microsoft windows. You must have Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later to run this software.

Hope this helps. Check out my hub for Free Ecommerce Website software if you plan to sell and make money on the internet- http://hubpages.com/hub/Free-Ecommerce-Websites
