Spybot Search and Destroy (Free Edition) is a free security software, an excellent antispyware, anti-adware removal tool. It will detect and remove most of these threats: Adware files, Trojans, Dialers, PUPs, Browser Hijackers (unwanted toolbars), Keyloggers, Rootkits and other malware or junkware files can infect your computer. It will also allow you to fix the Windows® Registry inconsistencies, to be more specific - those related to malicious applications that you are installing and adware.

Alongside Ad-Aware the famous Spybot Search and Destroy is the other key player in the anti-spyware arena. For years these bits of software have been protecting uneducated computer users from malicious spyware, trojans and malware. The protection offered by Spybot is slightly inferior to Lavasoft's offering but it comes in at the same low low price of $0 and unlike Ad-aware, you don't have to pay to access the extra features of the software.
