Spyware

I've just found a nifty tool in the battle against spyware, SpywareBlaster. It is free and does not need to be running to provide protection. It uses the "kill bit" to prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware from webpages. It does not scan and remove programs, just disable them. Combining this and Spybot should keep my machine free of those nasty programs.

This might be an ideal addition to the machines in public areas.
