About Spybot – Search & Destroy®
Spybot – Search & Destroy is a set of tools for finding and removing malicious software.
The ‘immunization’ feature preemptively protects the browser against threats. System scans and file scans detect spyware and other malicious software and eradicates it. Spyware is a kind of threat not always detected by anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your Internet activity to create a profile about you. This information can then be used for example by marketing and advertising companies.
Spybot – Search & Destroy is designed for use by either novice or experienced users. Novices can choose to view additional information on the available features while experienced users have additional tools and settings. It is fully functional and free for personal use!
