    I had a hard time finding good reviews for various anti spyware /
    adware / clutterware - usually people would just comment "worked for
    me" or "it did pretty good". I took a Dell XPS T750r and with the help
    of Norton Ghost had the same starting point for testing various tools:
    Spyware Doctor 2.0, Webroot Spy Sweeper, Spybot Search & Destroy 1.3,
    and Ad-aware 6.0 build 181. If you'd like, check it out: <a

    Good article. I had to remove the HTML code to get to the article.

    Bottom line. Run both Ad-aware and Spybot S&D for removals.

    How about an article on prevention pretection including IE-SPYAD,
    SpywareBlaster, WinPatrol and a HOSTS file like hpHOSTS?
