Dealing With Adware And Spyware – Part II, The Technology

from the other-options dept

Following yesterday’s “there oughta be a law…” article about adware and spyware, News.com has today’s installment about the various anti-adware/spyware software programs out there. They mainly focus on AdAware and ZoneAlarm – two very different, but fairly popular programs. The article points out, though, that beyond the tech savvy crew, not many people make much of an effort to find/download/install these sorts of programs. However, some ISPs and computer makers are starting to look into including them in their offerings as a differentiator against their competitors.
