Trojan Detectors

Some Trojans can be detected by specific tools designed to remove specific trojans in much the same way AV vendors have produced tools for specific viruses.

Spyware Detectors

  • AdAware
  • SpybotSD
  • SpywareBlaster

Spyware Warrior is an excellent site to visit for details on Anti-Spyware products, with some excellent resources as well as comparisons of numerous Anti Spyware tools.
