Pest Management - Routing out the Weeds

There are a number of safe software programs available to use to scan your computer for malware. Please be careful to select one or two known programs. If unfamiliar with the software, check the Spyware Warrior List of Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products and Web Sites.

Should you still require assistance, please visit one of the ASAP Member sites.

You can find me most frequently at Freedomlist and LandzDown Forums.

The most commonly used anti-malware software programs:

Ad-Aware® SE
ewido anti-spyware
Spybot S & D
Windows® Defender (Beta Software, use at your own risk)
Following is a list of online virus scanners to select from. Note that most require Internet Explorer and ActiveX turned on.
- Trend Micro - RAV - Panda - McAfee
- Kaspersky (single file scan) - Dr. Web - Command - BitDefender - Symantec
