Beware of Free Spyware removal tools! There is a saying I generally like which is a energy based term (you dont get anything for nothing) well in the spyware world you can oftern get a whole lot more than you bargained for.

Often when machines are infected with spyware, people search the internet looking for free removal tools. these tools are readily available and very easy to download. Although some are adequate for detecting spyware, many install even more spyware and bring additional problems to your machine.

Once spyware has infested your machine, it will try and embed itself into every opportunity (vulnerability) it can find, this very oftern means the spyware removal tool you have downloaded does not stand a chance of removing the spyware when the machine is operating in normal mode, even booting in safe mode does not allow proper removal of spyware.

Some spyware can cause so much damage, that spending time repairing the operating system is pointless, and recovery of data - re-install is the best option.

System restore is often a favorite recovery method, however some spyware have got this covered by infiltrating the system restore volume data, so that when you conduct a restore, the spyware is back.
