    It seems that some folks just can not get away from the spyware that is not only trouble for computer users, now it is costing Google big money.

    So it seems that what goes around comes around.

    ALL SPYWARE AND ADWARE SHOULD BE OUTLAWED! Period.....

    Next these guys will be riding along on toolbars, spyware on spyware :cool:

    Just as a helpful link here is the best adware + spyware remover out there. It is free for personal use and it has regular update at least weekly of updated adware definitions like an antivirus program.

    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

    I had that exact adware that is described in the artivle and i could not remove it until this software.

    The summary of the article is of SpyWare that changes your Google results and inserts it's own results. Google is doing nothing wrong here.

    hmmmm, the best spyware remover? Not adaware, as itself is seen as spyware from the best spyware remover, SpyBot S&D. The newest version is 1.3 and found 7 additional spy tools after I ran a scan. I am a fan of using both as a cohesive unit.

    You make a incorrect statement about that, you can not back that up with any documentation from Spybot.

    I use both and Spybot has never shown any of the Adaware files as being in their spyware/adware scanning files.

    What they do say is that you will see some of the files listed since they are some sort of backup files, that does not mean they are considering it spyware.

    anthonycea, when are you actually going to get permission to have links? Having to copy and paste defeats the purpose of webpages.

    NewComputer makes a good point. You do need to use both Spybot and Ad-aware. They each appear to look for different spyware bugs. I have also seen spyware that neither Spybot nor Ad-aware could remove.

    Here's a great Google Answers article with instructions for spyware removal.

    Shawn does not like me, thats why Think Bling, but no one else does either, join the club, we call it the "I Hate Anthony Cea Club", $ 50.00 bucks a year via PayPal and you are a Gold Member.

    You would not believe the benefits that come with the "IHACard" don't leave home without it. :eek:
