Spybot - Search & Destroy:
Spybot - Search & Destroy can detect and remove
spyware of different kinds from your computer.
Spyware is a relatively new kind of threat that
common anti-virus applications do not yet cover. If
you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that
you didn't intentionally install, if your browser
crashes, or if you browser start page has changed
without your knowing, you most probably have
spyware. But even if you don't see anything, you may
be infected, because more and more spyware is
emerging that is silently tracking your surfing
behavior to create a marketing profile of you that
will be sold to advertisement companies. Spybot-S&D
is free, so there's no harm in trying to see if
something snooped into your computer, too :)
