I have been feeling like my computer has malicious software installed without me knowing. It's been acting strange lately and running slow. I search online for tools that can delete malicious software and came across Spybot Search & Destroy for Windows. It does exactly what its name suggests. It finds malware on computer systems and destroys them before it can do further harm. It's a free download. It supplements any other antivirus software I might have installed on my system. What a great find!
