Anti-Spyware software

Anti-spyware comes in two main forms. Some anti-spyware will scan your system for spyware that is already installed on your computer, while the other sort is known as a "behaviour blocker", and scans all data moving in and out of your computer, much the same way as anti-virus software does. There are not so many free anti-spyware sofware packages available. Many of the larger companies have packaged their anti-spyware software with their paid versions of their anti-virus software. There are also as many rogue anti-spyware applications around as there are good ones - in fact, probably more. These are the ones we recommend.
