Spybot – Search & Destroy©

Spybot – Search & Destroy is an adware and spyware removal tool used to protect user’s data from malware infection when using a Windows Operating System. It was created in the year 2000 by engineering student Patrick Kolla-Ten Venne, when he discovered his PC was infected by the Aureate/Radiate and Conducent TimeSink programs. This invasion of privacy really exasperated him so he wrote a program to remove these infections, which later became known as Spybot – Search & Destroy.

Spybot Anti-Beacon is a tool to disable telemetry and protect user privacy when using a Windows Operating System. It was created to address users’ concerns over Windows updates which automatically enabled options to send usage data to Microsoft.


FileAlyzer is a tool to analyze files. It allows a basic analysis of files (showing file properties and file contents in hex dump form) and is able to interpret common file contents like resources structures (like text, graphics, HTML, media and PE).

Using FileAlyzer is as simple as viewing the regular properties of a file – just right-click the file you want to analyze and choose Open in FileAlyzer.


RegAlyzer is a tool to browse and change the registry. It was created because of a few features we missed in the original regedit tool, from support for exotic value types over background and regular expression search to better bookmarks, displaying .reg files in the accustomed style and a history view.
