Best Anti-Spyware Programs – Top 10 list

spywareToday, an effective anti-spyware program is just as important as an antivirus program. Sometimes both are packaged into one program that protects against all types of infections, but some users look for a separate anti-spyware solution.

If you already have an antivirus program but don’t have spyware protection, you should review my list of top 10 anti-spyware programs and perhaps try one of them.

I tried to find and list free programs only, but I couldn’t ignore the great reviews and effectiveness of the first two programs on the list. Maybe they are really worth the money?

My 10 choices are:

  1. Spy Sweeper (buy or free trial)
  2. CounterSpy (buy)
  3. Spyware Terminator (free)
  4. Spyware Doctor (free)
  5. SpywareBlaster (free)
  6. SUPERAntiSpyware (free edition or buy pro version for $30)
  7. CA Antispyware (buy – around $40)
  8. Spybot Search & Destroy (free)
  9. Ad-Aware Personal Edition (free)
  10. Spyware Detector (buy for $30)

Also, try CW Shredder (against CoolWebSearch spyware) and Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware.

Enjoy testing the new software!
