    Other Spyware removers

    I've seen a few threads on AdAware and Spybot S&D. Two lesser known programs I've found recently will compliment these two nicely:
    Hijack This
    SpywareBlaster

    I thought I had things properly bolted down after a reinstall of 98SE/IE5, but I left a minute window of opportunity and ended up with a 20KB HOSTS file. A significant offender was CoolWebSearch, which even warrants its own dedicated nuking program called CWShredder.

    Amazing the time & effort spent on eradicating this rubbish that invades your personal space uninvited!

    As you know, yet another Merijn program is StartupList.

    I hope Merijn doesn't sell out, like Jouni Vuorio (of JV16 Power Tools fame) did. His program combined together many of these disparate utilities, but not to the extent you'd pay $30 for the latest version.

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    StartupList is a must have tool and excellent for diagnosing issues for others long distance.
