    hi guys, I recently reformatted my hd because of serious spyware, and was wondering what the best spyware remover was.

    btw, ad-aware 6.0 build 182 and spybot 1.2 found nothing.

    if you had both of those running and uptodate, then it wasnt spyware/ addware mate

    they are the best 2 on the market by far

    SpySweeper is fast, and usually finds more than the other two mentioned. It is also not really directly attacked by some spyware like Ad-aware is. The only down side is that it is shareware and not free. You can find it online if you know what I mean.

    Pest Patrol Corporate is a very powerful scanner/remover. It even found two things that Spybot and Adaware missed. Its just expensive, but can also be "tested" indefinately if you find it (PM me if you REALLY can&#39;t find it)

    Are you sure you have updated them. I find people sometimes fail to do that

    Gotcha.
    Just so you know, the "actual" trial version isn&#39;t as fuctional as the full version... I think. I haven&#39;t been using the trial version in quite a while. I just use the full version.

    I have a CDRW on which I keep the latest versions of Spysweeper, Spybot, Adaware, HijackThis and McAfee&#39;s Stinger. I use it for computers that I visit with malware problems.

    I was wondering if someone was going to mention Hijackthis...cnet

    If you don&#39;t want to learn how to read the logs...There are security
    forums that will tell you what to get rid of.

    Or you could post it here and I will help you.
    However if you would like to learn to do it on your own here is an excellent
    tutorial...hijackthis help

    Good luck.

    Peace brotherdoobie
