    Hi all,
    I have been reading some of the threads on here regarding getting rid of spyware, and quite a few people recommend adaware se personal.

    Could anybody tell me is it straight forward and easy to use?? ...and if so could somebody give me a link to download it as i would rather use a link that is trusted rather than downloading it from somewhere myself and probably downloading something dodgy instead.

    If you dont recommend adaware se personal...what would you recommend??

    Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

    Ad-aware is a good tool to use, but I prefer to use more then one tool when I do scanning for spyware and ad-aware. The other tools that I use are hijack this and Spy bot search and destroy. I find both of these tools pretty easy to use, no special configurations are needed.

    I have to agree, spy-bot S&D is a great tool to use to remove spyware. Also hijack this can give plenty of info on what is running on your PC from the generated log file. 8)

    Spyware doctor is pretty thorough and user-friendly.

    You can download Spyware Doctor Starter Edition FREE from google pack here

    Google pack is a collection of free programs, when downloading just download the Spyware doctor app, you will see all the programs listed with a tick box next to them, untick all the others apart from spyware doctor to download the single program.

    Once you've installed any spyware/adware removal programs remember to always press 'Update' before running scans and that way you will have all the latest definitions/signatures so that the program can find and remove all the latest spyware/adware/malware.

    Hope this helps
