Spybot Search and Destroy is also known as Spybot S&D. It is a freeware that protects against, detects and removes spyware.

When you install some applications that you download from the internet or visit some websites, spyware may be installed into your operating system without your knowledge. This is why you should download a free anti spyware software such as Spybot Search and Destroy to prevent it.

Spyware silently tracks and records your surfing behaviour, including the websites you visit and how often you visit them. At the same time, the spyware will create a marketing profile of you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers, which is then sold to advertising companies.
