Running Spybot

Spybot Search & Destroy (usually just called "Spybot") is an anti-spyware utility that detects and removes malicious software (commonly referred to as "spyware"). Use this program to ensure that no unwanted software has found its way onto your system, and to remove anything that may have snuck in. This program works well in tandem with AntiMalware to provide double coverage for your system.
