Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

Spybot 2 for private use

Why use the Free Edition?

If all you require is to be able to scan and remove malware and rootkits from your system. Or if you want to protect your PC by immunizing your browser and hosts file, the ‘Free Edition’ is the choice for you. If you are a more experienced user you can also check various ‘autostart’ locations using the ‘Startup Tools’. Spybot 2 can scan single files or specific folders and unlike other software it doesn’t matter if the file is located on your local drives or on a network share. Spybot 2 comes with its own whitelist which helps to identify if files are legitimate or not. This useful addition helps to speed up the scan. Even though this fully functioning product is free of charge you can still get free support by emailing our support team.

A system immunization feature is also available, aimed to apply preventive measures against spyware and blocking malware from infecting your computer, while statistics can be generated automatically, such as the date and time of the last system, file or rootkit scan, as well as the total number of detected items. SpyBot - Search & Destroy is a handy real-time protection solution against malware, with reliable spyware detection and disinfection capabilities.

For home users who want spyware protection for their own or their families Windows based Personal Computers and do not need additional antivirus protection.
Users manually look after own updating.
Can be upgraded to the ‘Home Edition’ if required.
