How to remove spyware, or not

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Here is a dismaying tale describing how a company in New York that makes spyware and adware does business (via Brian Chin). Brian also points to a big list of instructions for how to remove various types of malware from your Windows PC.

Even looking at those instructions now, I don't think I would have had any alternative to what I had to do and the end of 2005 when my aunt and uncle's computer became infested with spyware: format and reinstall.

So far my Macs have been unaffected by any of this sort of stuff, and I hope it stays that way.
