I hate spyware. With a passion. Not so much because it’s a problem on my computer, but because the asses that put that shit out there are so unscrupulous about getting people to install it that it’s always all over the PCs of my family members which I inevitably have to remove. On Easter day I spent part of my time at my in-law’s house cleaning up my mother-in-law’s PC of about 8 different spyware packages. Hate stupid spyware. Hate the stupid heads that make it.
Anyway, one of the two tools I primarily rely on to rid PCs of this crap is Spybot Search & Destroy because A) it’s
open source free and B) it does a damned good job at what it does. For those of you who are also fans you’ll be happy to hear that the version 1.3 release candidate is now available. You can see a list of changes and get a download link here. Now go smash some spyware.
