I've got 8 rules for fighting spyware

...A new pest comes out and the user community jumps into the fray and dissects it. Some kid in Finland or New Zealand will release a cleaning tool and the community will decide if it works or not. It works much like how Linux was first developed.

Few of these folks make a dime (the guy who wrote SpyBot, one of the best tools on Earth, wrote it and released it free as homage to a would-be girlfriend). Very few of the real commercial tools do a complete job of swabbing up the mess that these pests have left behind. (One recent PC in our shop took more than 25 separate tools to eliminate completely.)
