List of the best anti-spyware tools, designed to help users keep their home and work computers free from threats. This list answers the question, 'What is the best free anti-spyware tool available?' For those seeking a way to identify threats to their PCs or Mac computers, and eliminate those threats as quickly as possible, the best anti-malware software is a must.

What makes for a truly great anti-spyware program? A program that is easy to use and reliable. The tool must be fast, functional and user-friendly. Protecting computers from potentially malicious threats is serious business. Users must be able to trust that the anti-spyware tool they choose can zap any new threats and remove spyware from their computers, before any malicious programs can cause irreparable damage.

The antivirus tools listed on this page include programs that serve a dual purpose: They are able to correctly and quickly isolate malicious viruses from computers (i.e. quarantine and ultimately remove the threat) and they must offer ongoing protection from any future threats. In short, the best virus removal tool finds and blocks the spyware before it ever has a chance of causing chaos.

Some of the anti-spyware tools listed here are fairly sophisticated and able to detect even the most stealth spyware programs. The threats are isolated, giving users the option to manually remove each threat, one by one.

Credible anti-spyware tools often warn novice users to be careful with spyware removal this way, because some malware programs attach themselves to critical computer components. Removing the spyware might also mean removing parts of windows files or, more rarely, registry entries.
