Spy Chaser - look before you install freebies
|The authors of this program are trying to do
us a good deed by offering a program that gives you a searchable list of
known freebie spyware programs. It looks like this one is fairly new and
could use a lot of work yet, but I respect them for trying. Some websites
offer a similar service such as Spyware-Guide.com's
and Cexx.org's listings and I
typically use those. If the authors of Spy Chaser are able to update the
program often and keep it up to date it could be a great resource in the
fight against spyware.

Ever downloaded a 'Free' program only to find out it was Spyware? (Banner Advertiser Supported) Or even worse, many will hide the Spyware functions and not tell you. At the time of this release there were 762 known Spyware programs and Spy Chaser lists them and lets you enter a program name to see if it's on this list.
