Very true, good adware removal imo is Ad-Aware. Free and quick, and even deletes your cookies if you want it to. ><sgurschick said:Avira AntiVirus for me. Not cpu intensive, detects malware, spyware, and rootkits. It's very customizable In addition I'll routinely run a scan with SUPERAntispyware, which has come along way in the last year or so. No one scanner will prevent or find everything. Never hurts to have more than one.
