What windows users spend their time bitching about instead of learning Linux.
If you want to get rid of/prevent spyware, and are too damn "busy" to learn some Linux, you probably should quit using default windows browsers (Internet Explorer) it is a piece of shit. Use Mozilla Firefox... Its a free web browser, that will save your life. Maybe you could even get a firewall, who knows, the possibilities are endless. Wipe your HDD if you have to, just don't spend time and money on spyware "removal" utilities
Windows user: I must be rally stupid.
Linux user: Yes you are.
For all windows users: www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/central.html
download and use that browser, its the best

Spyware is basically any piece of software that is installed in your computer without your knowledge. They can do a number of things like for example, taking over a part of your system, say your internet browser and always bring you to their site whenever you type an address. There are multiple versions of these kinda programs. Another common one keeps track of what you do online and offline and sends this information to its own company, or sells them to other companies.
Get rid of them by using Ad-aware or Spybots, found in www.download.com.

Spyware installs itself on your computer after being contracted from a website or banner ads, where it secretly collects information about you and your computer, floods you with pop-ups, etc. Multiple instances of spyware can make your computer run about the same speed as Doom 3 on an Atari 2600. Also one of the main reasons so many people have stopped using Internet Explorer. Somewhat similar to a virus, but is rarely as damaging as one.
Oh noes! This spyware makes counter-strike run like crap!

Spyware is something on your computer that "impairs "users' control over material changes that affect their user experience, privacy or system security; use of their system resources, including what programs are installed on their computers; or collection, use and distribution of their personal or otherwise sensitive information."
That was the definition of spyware agreed on by the Anti-Spyware Coalition.
