3 Ways To Get Rid of Spyware

Jan 9, 2008
There are a lot of ways to get rid of spyware, malware and adware that we simply dont have the space to include, so included in this article are 3 ways to get rid of spyware.

1. Personally removing spyware yourself

2. Removing cookies and staying away from odd-looking downloads/websites.

3. Spyware removal tools

To personally remove spyware effectively and safely, you would need to have a comprehensive knowledge of what files are normally there and what aren't. You would need to be able to undertake a full registry back-up before even attempting, and know precisely what you should be doing to the infected files afterwards.

This is a technique only those who know exactly what they are doing should undertake, as the result from deleting just one file which cannot be recovered is very likely to be an expensive fix.

The second is mainly general PC care and common sense. A lot of people know that spyware is contained in a lot of the downloads we perform, such as various messenger installations which sometimes come with special little add-on packages that we dont really need. These little add-on packages nine times out of ten are inclusive of a spyware special directly from the provider of that download you do want.

Keeping your internet cache as empty as possible helps, as well as looking out for those sneaky little programs that come as part of the parcel with your chosen downloads can only help.

Cookie removal is an effective preventative method, as well as one for removal. Watching the cookies contained on your computer after a browsing session is a good way to see where some of the spyware/adware is originating from. This is a tip you could use even if you choose a better method.

Lastly, and most effectively for most are spyware removal tools. These come in a variety of shapes and forms, ranging from free to around $30 per two year / lifetime licence cost and are worth every penny. They scan the registry as well as check for any invalid file paths (and much more) and fix any errors they come across.

A good spyware removal tool will work in the background and cause no disruption whilst you work. Any good download/review site will guide you into choosing which is the best one for your needs.

Just remember that software which is free isnt necessarily the best. The reason why free spyware removal software isn't the best is because they don't invest the funds that others do, therefore their spyware databases are smaller, their features are not as enhanced, and also their customer service is virtually nonexistent!

Therefore, it is important that you invest in a spyware removal product that can really help solve your spyware issues.
