What windows users spend their time bitching about instead of learning Linux.
If you want to get rid of/prevent spyware, and are too damn "busy" to learn some Linux, you probably should quit using default windows browsers (Internet Explorer) it is a piece of shit. Use Mozilla Firefox... Its a free web browser, that will save your life. Maybe you could even get a firewall, who knows, the possibilities are endless. Wipe your HDD if you have to, just don't spend time and money on spyware "removal" utilities
Windows user: I must be rally stupid.
Linux user: Yes you are.
For all windows users: www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/central.html
download and use that browser, its the best
