SpyBot – Search & Destroy 2.x Available for Download

After 5 years of waiting (the last version of Spybot 1.6.2 was released in 2009) the new Spybot 2.0 offers the following new Spybot-Search-Destroy-2features – and several performances improvements, for all Windows versions.

What’s New in Spybot – Search & Destroy 2.0 :

· Live Protection is now enabled by default
· Performance improvements for Live Protection
· Live Protection scans can be cancelled
· Improved compatibility with third-party products
· Explorer Context Menu Extension for files and folders

SpyBot Search & Destroy SR2 still gets along with each and every Windows edition on the market, including XP, 7, and 8. Both 32- and 64-bit versions of the operating system should work just fine.

Try out Spybot S&D as it is easy and free to use, even for beginners.  It offers some basic protection against malware, but I wouldn’t use it as only means of protection.  This is wht Cnet says about it:

“Spybot Search & Destroy is a free antispyware utility that targets adware, malicious code, and other threats. It also cleans security tracks, shreds files, and tweaks the Registry. The optional TeaTimer feature protects the Registry from real-time attacks. Spybot isn’t a replacement for a full antivirus program, though it does detect and remove some threats

After reading this, I should point out I still prefer using the commercial brand of SpyHunter anti-malware software.
