Spybot Search & Destroy Company: PepiMK Software Author: Patrick M. Kolla (Donationware) (free) Windows OS: Windows Languages: English and many other languages

Description: SpyBot-S&D searches your hard drive for so-called spy- or adbots; that is, little modules that are responsible for the ads many programs display. Many of these modules also transmit information, including your surfing behavior on the Internet. If SpyBot-S&D finds such modules, it can remove them. Another feature of Spybot S&D is the removal of usage tracks, which makes it more complicated for unknown spybots to transmit useful data. The list of last visited websites, opened files, started programs, cookies, all that and more can be cleaned. Supported are the three major browsers Internet Explorer, Netscape Communicator and Opera. Spybot-S&D also contains some routines to find and correct invalid entries (regarding links left over from software uninstalled long ago, for example) into the registry (the global Windows database for settings).
