hi looking for free spyware removal downloads, can you help.regards
Most common recommendations are adaware, spybot and spywareblaster.
Use all three together, if you do a search here you'll find loads of info about spyware removal.
How do you know if you're suffering?
Generally computer running slow, network connection running slow, if you're running a download meter lots of traffic when you're not on the net (although that can just be file sharing if you're running it).
Have a look in the task manager to processes you don't know (if you've never looked at that there's be lots of them, that's normal).
If you run a command prompt and type "netstat -a" you can look for open ports that you don't know about.
Have a quick google for "spyware faq" and you'll turn up hundreds. Just remember to only download recommended programs as half the spyware removal tools will be spyware themselves!
you can get search and destroy from hereand adaware from here
I think Adaware SE is a terric little freeware spyware remover. I've also used Spybot which is also good but a little more cumbersome than Adaware. Type Adaware into google and you'll be there.
you dont need to do a google just follow the 2 links ive giving you and there are there
