An easy way to scan for spyware

Patrick Stafford /

tech-tricksSpyware is a huge problem, especially when you’re not entirely sure about the sites you’re visiting. Your computer could be infected and you don’t even know it.


Most people have no idea how to check for spyware, even though there are plenty of programs made specifically to get rid of it.


One of the best on the market is Spybot, available to download here. It’s a free download and is constantly updated with new files to search for.


If you want to get rid of some spyware, download this and give it a go. Of course, make sure you know what you’re doing, and if you’re not confident about downloading a file without having scanned it for viruses, then play it safe.
