It’s an epidemic!

posted in: Tech | 0

I’m declaring spyware and browser hijackings as an epidemic based solely on this:

Just about everyone I meet who knows what I do for a living, starts asking me about how to clean this crap out of their systems! Seriously, the guy who does building maintenance for our office just stopped by and asked for some advice on getting rid of a browser hijacker! Here’s the list of links I gave him to help:

Hijack This!

Spyware Info Hijacker Page

Spybot S&D

Startup Inspector

AdAware

Then I gave him the standard set of recommended links for anyone with broadband at home:

Zone Alarm

Grisoft AVG free version

Google Toolbar -to block most site popups

And, of course, there’s always mozilla.org. 🙂
