About Spybot - Search & Destroy

Editors Review
Spybot is an old name in the world of anti-spyware threat removal, but the current product is a far more enhanced piece of software than it once was. It now comes with a whole host of threat detection and removal features, as well as antivirus protection. It's also far more lightweight and efficient than it used to be. Alas, some features have been removed from the free version, reducing its value as a free tool compared to the competition.
